Cascade Classic

Mark and Rob loaded up the truck for a carpool down to one of the hardest stage races around, the Cascade Classic in Bend, Oregon.

Mark was racing in the Cat1/2 40+ field.  On the last stage, a hilly circuit race, he finished 4th in a strong break that put 4 mins on the field.  This moved him up into 8th on GC.

Rob was racing his first Cat 2 race and did well finishing in or near the top half of the field daily and 45th overall.  A good first experience as a Cat 2 over a tough, fast wknd.

Stage racing and travel km's taking the toll.  

Bend, Oregon and road trips in general.
