It was a windy, rainy day — perfect for a spring classic road bike race! We had 4 juniors enter the race and 2 finished on the podium for their age group.
Juniors 13-15 top 5
1. Rising, Jack (Fred Meyer/Lakeside Cycling Team)
2. Carrick, Cameron (Bend Endurance Academy)
3. Dunlap, Colin (Bend Endurance Academy)
4. Prettyman, Walker (Beaverton Bicycle Club)
5. Lee, Dey Shaun (Word-RCB)
Keenan Branch raced in the 16-18 group but was misdirected on the course. He and another rider were mixed with another junior field and did not know where to lap, so they did not finish the race.
Cole Sprague did his first race as a category 4 rider and made his way into a 3-man break that gained 2 minutes on the field at one point. The break came back and Cole was crashed out on the last lap. He lost some skin on his elbow but that’s all part of road racing :)
