Rotem Ishai rode off with the top men’s honor during Sunday’s Tour de Los Alamos.

Ishai, from Durango, Colo., won the licensed men’s pro 1/2/3 race Sunday, just nipping one of New Mexico’s top cyclists, Damian Calvert of Albuquerque, by a mere one second.

The Tour de Los Alamos, a road race which takes participants from Central Ave. to White Rock via the Back Gate and back up to the Hill on East Jemez Road, celebrated its 38th running Sunday. It is the oldest continuously-run bicycle race in the southwestern U.S.

Ishai finished the 3-lap, 81-mile race in 3 hours, 29 minutes, 59 seconds, just a second better than Calvert.

By that one second margin, Calvert just missed out on winning his second major Los Alamos bike race in a hair over a week. Calvert won the men’s pro/semipro division of the Pajarito Punishment mountain bike race June 12.

The 2009 men’s winner of the Tour de Los Alamos, local racer Fortunato Ferrara, was third in the top men’s division, posting a time of 3:30:06.

In the licensed women’s category 1/2/3 competition, Albuquerque’s Mindy Caruso won the 54-mile race with a time of 2:45:27, more than four minutes better than her nearest competitor, Stacey Nenninger, also of Albuquerque.
