USCF Race Results

Yakima is blessed with dry weather and many beautiful roads to ride, if perhaps cursed by being quite far from most of the USCF Sanctioned Bike Races which are largely held in the Seattle area. However, a few stalwarts do manage to travel to the races and their results will be posted here beginning with the 2009 Race Season. Also in 2009, Chinook Cycling Club will be hosting a time trial race in Yakima and so local racers will once again have an at home opportunity to race.

Frost Bite Time Trail - February 22nd 2009    
Erik Brenneke 1st Juniors

Echo Red to Red Mtn. Bike Race    
Larry Jensen 2nd 45-54 Sport
Charlie Wilcox 9th 30-44 Sport

"The day started with Larry’s weather report. 20% chance of rain.  The drive to Echo was sketchy at best, fog, rain, ice.  We get to Echo, light rain.  All classes started at 11:00 with a neutral roll out.  177 riders, it was like a road race.  Then it started, 2 miles of dirt road and then we all funneled into the single track!  It looked like Sea Otter, one huge ribbon of riders winding around single track.  Cool stuff.  Larry came to represent.  He was off like a shot making his moves. He ended up finishing second (45-54 sport class)in spite of going the wrong way for ½ a mile!  I was also doing well until I pulled my own bullheaded move and dropped my glasses.  I must have lost 20 plus places waiting for some yahoo to throw me my glasses.  Oh well.  I practiced my passing skills for the rest of the race.  I finished 9th in the 30-44 sport class.  Conditions were great, very little mud and it quit raining during the race!  They already said this race will be back next year!"
