We've been to the mountaintop!

S. Miller, S. Bedard, P. Jennings, J. Morris, M. Miller
Government Camp to Timberline Lodge,
is the traditional
Tristan Young
route of the Oregon Hillclimb Chamionship.

West Leg Road and 2,700 feet of climbing in just five miles make it a harrowing test.

Just getting up the hill was the order of the day for our Cyclisme racers. Beginners that they were, they were able to pluck  the low lying fruit of entry-level championship.
Cyclisme racers were some of the slowest in the 75 person competition, but still they won medals in their divisions.

However, our new Peter Jennings cruized up the old Timberline road in 32 minutes for the 25th fastest time, and became the State Champion in the Cat 5 Men's Division. He would have needed to complete the course in 25 minutes to win in the Pro 1/2, but just 29 minutes to win in the Cat 4s.

Sarah Miller celebrates a Bronze Medal in the 4/5 Women.
In the overall Oregon Cup Individual Time Trial Series Sarah Miller and Tristan Young won the women's 4/5 and Junior 15 yr. old's, while Joshua Morris finished second for his annual effort in his 11yr. old division.
