Evan Elkan (Broadmark Capital Cycling) won the first stage of the Cascade Classic today which came down to a bunch sprint at the end of an aggressive day in the saddle. Elkan edged out seasoned sprinters Alex Candelario (Jelly Belly) and Gord Fraser (Health Net p/b Maxxis to take the win and earn the leaders jersey going into stage two.

After ten miles of racing the attacks began through the gorgeous landscape of Bend, Oregon. Christian Fowler from the newly formed Subway team broke away with Jeff Louder (Navigators) for one of the first breaks of the day. Fowler was caught, and Louder soloed on to take the first KOM of the day. He was later joined by another group of five riders containing John Lieswyn, Burke Swindlehurst (Navigators), Michael Creed (USPS), Charles Dionne (Webcor) and Cam Evans (Symmetrics). The gap stretched out to over three minutes but was later caught with counters to follow.

With ten miles to go, Chris Baldwin (Navigators) took off with Andrew Bajadali (O'Foto) for one final attempt to get to the line solo. They two were reeled in by Health Net who were preparing Fraser for the sprint. On the line though, it was Elkan who snuck around on the right to take the win from Candelario.
