Cascade

It's back!

May 31 through June 3

Cascade Cycling Classic will return for 2018 | Cyclingnews.com

Bowen also told the Bulletin that he expects to reconfigure the nature of the race routes from years past, although he would not rule out a stage with a mountain-top finish.

“I’m pretty confident that what we put together will attract riders who like to race in Bend,” he told the Bulletin. “[The mountain roads] will potentially have snowbanks, but we really feel that’s going to be a cool aspect of the race.”

Bowen also said he hopes to make changes to the fan-favoutite downtown criterium and reconfigure a more spectator-friendly version of the iconic Awbrey Butte Circuit Race, Cascade’s traditional final stage on a course that has been used for multiple national championships.

Ugh ... was hoping to never have to go back. Never race well there. I am curious to see what new courses they roll out though.

Cascade is out for 2018... but sounds like they'll shoot for 2019.

I was finally gonna give the pro/1 race a shot there, since there was only one TT & RR before the crit, and the crit is really all I wanted to do there. Damn, next year I hope!

Pretty bummed about it. I know a lot of guys here in UT were planning on it as a big target race, so they'll have to figure out some replacement.

historically so few guys from UT ever travel to that race. there is often lots of talk, but in many years of going i can count on one hand the number of UT racers who actually ever showed up.

pretty sad. however, for the population size there are lots of races every week within a short drive, so that doesn't really encourage them to go far.

tough thing is once a promoter cancels a race one year it is forever in jeopardy in future years.

people get more hesitant to make plans around it (training, travel, vacation).

Yeah.. Utah kinda sucks in that regard. But I know the Hangar 15 guys were planning on sending a squad and a few others would have bailed at the last minute after registration opened.

"Planning on sending a squad..."

There are always lots and lots of plans to travel; few materialize.

Those plans usually come to light AFTER the race gets cancelled. We had a couple get called off locally and the griping has begun. "We were gonna bring the whole team...".

I hope the Jazz go through, just because I think they match better against the Rockets. OKC's game just doesn't translate at all to stopping that offense.
