Columbia Plateau Stage Race

Portland, OR, June 9-11, 2000


By David Morgan

The Columbia Plateau Stage Race is one of the very few point-to-point stage races in the US. Riders love it for the remote, traffic-free roads and the down-home attitude. Promoted as a family affair by Mark Schwyhart and his wife Michelle Elligott, the race began with the simple idea that the Columbia Plateau is simply a superb place for bicycle riding - so why not start a race?

Gauging by the number and attitudes of the riders, it's a huge success. The most frequent comment was a reflection of the level of difficulty - as nearly every rider seemed to describe this event as "a race of attrition." Enthusiasm for the race in general was unanimous, and most were along the lines of this comment by Heinrich Wiebe of Nutra Fig.

"This race rocks! No traffic, great courses and competition - and it's point-to-point!"

With the full-scale support of the citizens and governments of the communities of Ione, Heppner and Fossil, the race has become a reality. And, after six years, it has grown to a regional classic - and could become even more.

The race starts in Heppner, about 3 hours east of Portland, south of I-84. It draws many racers from not only Oregon and Washington, but Canada, Montana and Idaho. Most who ride it once ride it again - and come back with friends!

The race circles north from Heppner to Ione, then southwest to Fossil before returning back up to Heppner. A baggage truck carries the racers' gear, and the riders camp either on school grounds or sleep in school gymnasiums. Meals and accommodations, including showers, are included in the entry fee. Riders can opt to arrange for these amenities on their own, but these remote communities are not set up for much tourism.

The experience of the race is warm and friendly. The small farming communities turn out in force to help with the overall race logistics and help cook up large home-style meals for the hungry riders and volunteers.

With outstanding competition, great roads, scenery and topography, the Columbia Plateau Stage Race should continue to grow in popularity. It's unique, challenging and fun.

Dahlberg's strength holds out and strategy pays off

HEPPNER, or Nathan Dahlberg gave it everything he had, and it turned out to be just enough. Going into the fourth and final stage of the Columbia Plateau Stage Race, with just under two minutes on Ron Schmeer, he knew it wasn't a done deal. Dahlberg, the cagey pro from New Zealand, was riding alone. Schmeer, the Northwest's favorite, had his Nutra Fig squad. Each would have to face 85 more miles of steep climbs, unpredictable weather and harsh headwinds before a winner could be decided.

This point-to-point race, with three days and four stages of racing, courses through some of the finest cycling terrain in Oregon - or anywhere, for that matter. Remote, absent of traffic and undeniably challenging, the broad and exposed ridges, forested passes and extremes of weather make this mix of wheatfields and the Wild West a superb setting for serious bicycle racing. It brings out the best in competitors.

And it brings in plenty of riders - approaching 300 Pro, Cat 1/2, 3/4, Masters and Women racers - from all over the Northwest and Canada for this Friday through Sunday race (June 9-11). Most have been here before. Schmeer won it in 1999 and 1997.

Muffy Roy, after winning the Women's title this year said, "This is my favorite race! It's got to be one of the best races around - and for sure in the Northwest. This one is great because it's point-to-point. And the topography, it's phenomenal!"

The race began in Heppner, Oregon on Friday, June 9 with the Heppner Road Race, a relative warm-up course of 74 miles for the Pro & 1/2's and 55 miles for the 3/4's, Masters and Women. Both the men's and women's fields cruised this first day and finished with large pack sprints. With no time bonuses, large knots of riders from each class crowded the standings.

Saturday morning's three-mile Rietmann Time Trial proved to be the pivotal stage in the women's race, as Muffy Roy (KMX/Sunnyside Sports) opened a 12-second lead on Sara Neil (Trek/Volkswagen) and Lisa Magness (Hutch's Bicycles). Ron Schmeer and Min Van Velson (Trek/Volkswagen) finished in 5:29 to edge Dahlberg (5th) by 11 seconds. Jamul Hahn (Nutra Fig) placed second at 5:32 and Peter Devore (GS Lombardis) finished at 5:36 for fourth place.

After the uphill time trial, the afternoon's Ione Road Race promised to challenge racers on the long and winding road to Fossil. Fickle weather cooked up some serious winds to go along with alternating hot sun and cooler, cloudy conditions.

The Pro's and 1/2's, climbing and descended through massive rolling ridges of wheat, battled an epic 83-mile rollercoaster course that shattered the field.

Stage winner Dahlberg described the race. "We raced right from the start. It wasn't easy at all - it's not fast it's just hard. When you're not going up or down, you've got the very strong winds on the tops...."

After repeated attacks from all sides, Dahlberg and nine others went off the front for good at the 15 mile mark. The rest of the pack fought with each other and the terrain, and, by the time they had passed Condon, was in shambles. One group crashed on a downhill, and riders were strung out along the last 20 miles into Fossil.

Meanwhile, ahead on the same stretch, Schmeer attacked twice from the lead group before getting away on his third attempt. Heinrich Wiebe (Nutra Fig) was riding in the group lead group when Dahlberg made his move and showed the amazing strength that would eventually lead to his victory.

"Ronny was out front again and we weren't working together well to go after him. Dahlberg went to the front to pull and, instead of dropping back, rode to the left and just accelerated! It was so smooth and fast...we didn't even hear him shift. I couldn't believe how easy he made it look." said Wiebe.

Dahlberg, feeling strong and knowing he was behind after the time trial, chased down Schmeer. Riding together, they began to put time between themselves and the chase group. Sensing that Schmeer was tiring, Dahlberg, said "sorry, Mate, but I've to go..." and attacked on the final climb.

"He's a bit of a friend, but I was feeling good and I wanted to win - so I just put the hammer down. I needed some room, as I'm here all alone, but now I've got a pretty good buffer," said Dahlberg after winning the stage with a two minute margin over Schmeer.

Heinrich Wiebe and Svein Tuft (Trek/Volkswagen) placed third and fourth, with Brent Davis (Broadmark Capital) in fifth. All were more than three minutes back on the stage.

The women closed the stage with another pack finish, and the 12 second lead of Muffy Roy - a climbing specialist - was a sobering thought as the other women contemplated Sunday's two huge climbs on the route back to Heppner.

Sara Neil, winner of the stage, mother of two and, at 39, probably the most experienced woman in the field, summed it up. "...I've won all the points and everything except the time trial. There's not much I can do now. I didn't have a good TT. Muffy is a great climber."

The Fossil Road Race has each class racing the same 85-mile course leading back to Heppner. With 25 of the first 40 miles climbing 4,000 feet, this stage would be no leisurely Sunday ride.

In the Pro & 1/2 race, a group attacked immediately on the 8-mile, 1200 foot climb out of town. Schmeer and Dahlberg stayed together with the pack. But, according Peter Devore, Dahlberg immediately took control by jumping up the pace.

"We started off after the breakaway on the climb out of Fossil. It was amazing. Dahlberg did tempo all the way down the descent - and all along the flat section by the John Day River. Dahlberg was up there by himself towing the field along at 25 or 26 miles per hour!," said Devore.

Dahlberg's strategy and strength would prove to be the difference. Asked about it later, he said, "I wanted to keep the break within range, but I also wanted to keep a reasonable rhythm going, otherwise they'd all start attacking."

When the race turned north and began the brutal 2,800 foot climb to the pass, Dahlberg continued to push the pace, but Schmeer still began to attack. After four attempts he made a "massive" attack and was out in front alone, racing for the win.

"I knew Ron would try something. He took off on the big climb and I hoped he'd die by the end, but he didn't. I couldn't go any harder. By the end I was really struggling." said Dahlberg.

Dahlberg, with the help of Peter Devore, continued to keep the tempo up on the final two smaller climbs and kept Schmeer close enough.

Immediately after the race, Schmeer knew he was close but didn't make it. "My team rode really well, and I had a good day - I won the stage, but I don't think I was able to take back the overall from Nathan. Nathan's a great rider - he's done the Tour de France and the Giro, and I know what he's capable of. We did what we could, and it almost worked out. We sent a couple guys up the road and the plan was for them to get to the top and I'd bridge up. It didn't quite work out, but, that's racing," Schmeer said.

In the women's race, Muffy Roy nursed her lead from the Time Trial into victory, as the leaders finished together again.

"This has been my best finish here overall. The outcome came down to the time trial, as the ones in contention have otherwise finished together. I couldn't ask for a better race. And today, this was a great course to finish up with because it really tests your mettle," she said.

Sara Neil, who had seen it coming, was realistic, but positive about the race.

"I'm with a climber. On a really hilly course. On the last day. It just wasn't going to happen. There's no way. In hindsight, I guess I should have had a better time trial. I screwed up there. I wasn't really focused on it, I didn't think it was going to be that critical. I mean, I was a bit daft, really.

But, it's been a really good race for training, and I've had a good time. The whole event is really well-organized. It's nice the way all the people from these towns pull together; it's been a great experience."
