Registration for the 2006 Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend, OR, USA, is well underway, and race director Brad Cockman is recommending that interested participants register soon. "We've increased our field sizes a little this year due to the fact that last year we had to turn away a lot of racers. We don't want that to happen again, but we're still encouraging people to register early," said Cockman.
The CCC, now in its 27th consecutive year, is scheduled for July 12th-16th and consists of six stages for the Pro/1/2 Men, five for the Pro/1/2/3 Women and four for the Masters 35+/45+ and Category 3s. "This year we've changed things around slightly by adding another road race in the place of criterium and we're having one big crit day for all categories in downtown Bend on Saturday," Cockman added. "It should be a lot of fun."
