Francisco Mancebo (Canyon Bicycles) and Kristin Armstrong (Twenty 16-ShoAir) won the opening stages of the Cascade Cycling Classic Wednesday in Bend, Oregon. 

The five-day race opened with a revised version of the classic McKenzie Pass Road Race. The 2015 route started west of Bend in Madras and passed through Prineville, Redmond and Sisters before finishing with a 22km climb to the Dee Wright Observatory amid the otherworldly lava fields at the top of Mckenzie Pass.
