Cylance Pro Cycling’s Carmen Small Place’s Second on Cascade Cycling Classic Stage 2 Time Trial

Stage 2 of the Cascade Cycling Classic was a 16-mile time along the Crooked River in Prineville, Or. The stage was won by Tara Whitten from Canada with Cylance Pro Cycling’s Carmen Small coming in 8 seconds behind in second.

“Carmen negative split the time trial,” said Director Hilton Clarke of Carmen Small’s race today. “She noticed there was a head wind on the way out and she realized she needed to go at a lower wattage than she normally would go on the way out,” he added. “She maybe lost 20" to the leaders in the way out and made it up on the way back. We feel like we are in great position with 2nd in the overall looking towards a tough day tomorrow.”

Tara Whitten assumes the leaders Jersey going into stage 3 with Carmen retaining her QOM jersey and sitting in second position. “I was proud to stand on the podium in my new Castelli US champion's kit,” said Carmen. “I was second today, but I'll take it; only 8 seconds off the win. I'll be sporting the QOM Jersey tomorrow for my Cylance Pro Cycling crew who've been with me all the way.”

Stage 3 is a full day of climbing around Mt. Bachelor starting just outside of Bend at the Summit High School and finishing with a climb up to the Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort.
