    The CooperSpur circuit race yesterday sets up a very interesting (long) time trial today.

    BJM wins another stage?

    Aaron’s was going for Sanders and the QOM action all race, with MeredithMiller reported as the crusher pace-making beast … but a crash took Sanders out and now it’s back to focusing on Gomez’s GC chances.

    The TT will be VERY interesting today … can Goldstein still dominate? Or will the Gila TT Gomez won do a bit of confidence building as she chases Longo and Abbott through the Hood River windswept canyons. The Mt.Hood TT is the best in the US.

    epic, beautiful, truth race.

    I can see Abbott winning this TT.

      I had a blast reading up on the Mt. Tabor crit stage. As a kid I grew up on the western slope of Mt. Tabor and used to ride my own yellow banana seat Schwinn around the same roads they raced on a few days ago. There even was a race around that same course in the late ’70s. I did the kids race in ’78 and got a ribbon…however, no upgrade points.

      Kicking myself for not making it to Mt. Hood!!! Had my chance to bust out the serious soigneur action for one of our local teams… oy.

      Have a great weekend at the Kern Women’s SR!!
