For the inaugural edition of the Stampede, Csaba's family and the O'Brien clan rented a sweet house in the Tollgate area of Sisters for the long weekend. We all arrived late Friday, and spent Saturday relaxing and playing with the kids until about 2 when Csaba and I rode to town to pick up our numbers, etc for the race. We then rode a few miles of the course to check it out. Despite the recent rains, the course was pretty darn dry.
finished 4th in the Cat 2 45-54 field. Former Cyclismite Justin Serna and I worked well together pushing a hard pace for quite a while before he got up the trail by a minute or so near the end.
All in all a great vacation weekend and race!
