The Mt. Bachelor Ski Education Foundation (MBSEF) with the support of Columbia River Bank, will be holding the 26th Annual Columbia River Bank Cascade Cycling Classic (CRBCCC) in Oregon from July 6-10, 2005. The race, taken over by MBSEF last year, is going to fund the summer cycling program that the Foundation started last year.
The race is listed on the National Racing Calendar and consists of six stages run over five days for the professional men and a slightly shorter version for the professional women, masters and cat 2/3. Each stage is run on a different course. Traditionally there are three road races, one time trial, a circuit race and two criteriums. An awards ceremony is offered at the end of each stage, and awards for the overall title are offered during the awards ceremony at the final criterium race on Sunday in the Old Mill District.
A provisional start list is now up on www.cascade-classic.org
