Both, racing in Wooodland,
Washington, and training in Stumptown, Or.

on volcanic tree covered summits
and wind swept bottoms protected by a grand dike, alike.
Everyone on the team who is looking ahead to the April 18th "AS THE RAVEN FLIES" Oregon Individual TT Series event in McMinnville, is thinking about getting some more miles in, and a little speed work. Some brave souls took to the race calender for both this Sunday, at Dirty Circles II.

Blistering hot from the start, Captains of other teams were not about to let their team's speed be trapped in the narrow road's big pack bottle neck of last week.
"I was holding on as high as 2nd place for dear life, but that 2nd Lap HOT SPOT caught me off guard." said Tony Escobar. "before I realized what was happening, it was too late!"
"I had a great time though, " Tony added.
In the Senior 4/5s Brad Davidson had a spectacular time. Surfing the sweet spot at and near the front, Brad was able to chase down and catch breakaway attempts.

"Had a ton of fun though!" Brad said.
Back in old River City the tempo was brisk in the beginning and it intensified when the Home Krew climbed the slopes of Mt. Tabor. Willy Campbell who is taking on a full Oregon Cup TT Series after his tough collarbone breaking crash near the end of last Summer, is now a whole head taller and a budding leader of the younger Saturday crowd. Today was his day to try adding a Sunday adventure to his weekend of training with some very big Lore laden adults. Robin and Fergus!
