An Update From Hood River
Saturday, April 4, 2009 - Race Reports
It's late and I don't have much to say, typical TT and crit today.

The time trial of the Cherry Blossom Classic was this morning. 8 miles out and back with a head wind and steady 2% climb on the way out. Without a TT bike I finished 7th, 50 seconds behind the winner. Jeremy finished 2nd, 8 seconds back.

The Crit was in the evening in downtown The Dalles. It was a simple 4 corner rectangle with a tail wind on the home stretch. A crash in the race before ours took a while to clean up and since it was getting dark they shortened the race from 50 to just 28 minutes. The Bissell guys all raced really hard and attacked a bunch. I sat up for the sprint. It was good fun but way too short.

Results are being posted here and Oregon Cycling Action has some pretty cool and timely write-ups about the race.

For dinner I had some pizza because that is what Lance Armstrong had. Tomorrow is the last stage, a 85 miles hilly road race and it will be game on.
