Los Angeles resident Cory Williams took home his third first place finish in the Category 2 race at the Chevron Manhattan Beach Grand Prix Sunday.
For the former member of Crenshaw's L.A. City Section champion football team, the victory had to feel good. In fact, his win was a bit of a family affair.
"My brother was protecting me out there, leading me through the last seven laps and keeping me out of trouble," Williams told the Daily Breeze. "He [C.J. Williams] then dropped me off in the last 250 meters and I made my move," Cory said.
The brothers ride for Southern California Velo Under 23, which is "a Southern California based group of riders who are dedicated to promoting the sport in a clean and positive way," according to the team's Facebook page.
