Success at the 2016 Northwest Juniors Classic Stage Race
Over the BC Day long weekend Cannondale pb Fortius traveled to Elma, Washington for the Rapha 2016 Northwest Juniors Classic Stage Race. This 2 day, 3 stage race is specifically tailored towards younger riders and includes riders from the Pacific Northwest, Saskatchewan, Yukon, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado. At the start of each year our athletes set goals, train and make this race a focus of their season. With your support this year's race was our most successful yet with 1 leaders jersey, 5 GC podium finishes, 13 stage podium finishes and many more riders in the top 10 for each stage.
Overall DEVO pb Fortius' Nathan Bishop took home the u15 leaders jersey narrowly beating the second place finisher by only one second! Also notable is Evan McBeth who placed 4th overall in the u15 stage race. In the GC, DEVO's Lilly Ujfalusi placed 2nd, Elle Bush 3rd and Caitlin Wallin 4th overall. Our u13 boys cyclist Manu Moore placed 3rd overall and Campbell Parrish was a close 4th, also in the GC. Cannondale pb Fortius and WTNC leaders jersey holder Angela Law placed 3rd overall in the u19 category and Elizabth Gin placed 5th in U17.
Congratulations to all who trained all year, traveled to Elma and competed in a very tough stage race.
