So far 571 riders have signed up for the Cascade Cycling Classic including the 2 local Astana boys. That’s over 60% more than the 350 total from last year (though there wasn’t a women’s race last year) and there’s still room for a few more women and old guys. Should be some great battles all around and I for 1 am looking forward to watching the big fields of Pro women and men take on that crit course as I sip an Oregon micro brew after the masters race.
Unfortunately I heard that my teammate Shawn crashed out of the P/1/2 race in Vacaville yesterday and may not be joining us. I haven’t heard too much about the crash or the extent of the injuries, but I hope it’s not too bad and that he heals quickly.
