Quick report from the Northwest

Just catching up after our whirlwind tour of the Pacific Northwest for the final round of the Crank Brothers US Gran Prix of Cyclo-Cross Series.

Friday evening we flew into SeaTac airport, and drove down to Tacoma. We raced the Rad Racing Cup in Tacoma on Saturday, and then after the race drove down to Portland for the night. Sunday we raced at the Stumptown GP in Hillsboro, west of Portland - then flew out Sunday night.

Weekend highlights:

--> Two more wins and the Series overall title for Daniel Summerhill (Jr)
--> A 5th and 3rd place, resulting in 3rd overall in the Series, for Jim Lennon (Jr)
--> Two top-10 placings for Taylor Phinney (Jr)
--> Solid 18th and 15th place finishes for Troy Wells in the Elite races
--> Two top-10 placings for Brady Kappius (U23)


Thanks to Pioneer Organics in Seattle for getting together a great supply of local Northwest produce, granola, bread, etc for a lot of our meals. New Seasons Market in Portland was another good source, and we also had some of the best pizza out there from the really cool sustainability-oriented Hot Lips Pizza.
