Mt Hood Classic Stage Race

  • 3rd place general classification (GC) – Heather Youngwerth of Bobs-Bicycles.com!

Heather finished in a four-way tie for 2nd at the road race on Friday, just seconds behind the leader.

She was able to make up ground on the Saturday time trial with a “blazing” 40 second victory on the 18.7 mile course, beating out the Elite Cyclocross racer on her tail who had pit crew cheering her on. Heather took pack time at the Saturday criterium and was able to keep her overall lead by a 2 second margin, wearing the yellow leader jersey in the FINAL road race on Sunday.

She finished the 55 mile road race in 5th place, but held on to a podium position, placing 3rd overall! Very well done, Heather. Congrats on another great stage race finish.
