David Clinger (Prime Alliance) won the first stage of the Cascade Cycling Classic today taking the sprint out of a seven person breakaway. On a perfect 85 degree day in the Cascade Mountains the 95 mile stage set the scene for the kind of hilly terrain to come and was aggressive from the start.

It was Clinger’s teammate Danny Pate who initiated the first convincing break just as the race hit the second climb early in the race. He attacked over the climb taking a Schroeder Iron rider with him. The two stayed away for at least 50 miles of the race but never got more than a minute on the field. The Saturn team was instrumental at keeping the two at a safe distance and as the riders reached the business end of the race, the two were reeled in.

The final climb of the day was where the decisive break got away as riders attacked up the hill. In the break was David Clinger (Prime Alliance), Mike Sayers (Health Net), Tom Danielson (Saturn), Chris Wherry (Navigators), Drew Miller (Trek), Andy Bajadali (Ofoto-Lombardi Sports) and Greg Drake (Webcor).

With the break remaining away to the finish line, it was Clinger who took the stage adding to a very successful season to date. Taking second place was Sayers followed by Danielson with Jackson Stewart taking the bunch sprint for 8th place. Clinger will go into tomorrow’s stage in the yellow jersey as riders face the McKenzie Pass and 7000 feet of climbing. Also tomorrow, the elite women begin their tour with a 70mile race over the same course as the men.
