Cycling classic part of Eugene Celebration
For the 15th straight year, the Eugene Celebration Cycling Classic will be a featured event at the three-day annual downtown block party.
Nearly 250 riders from the Northwest, California and Canada are expected to compete in five different classifications for a piece of the $2,700 pot.
Race organizer Jim Anderson anticipates about 70 professional cyclists will make the trek to Eugene for the three-stage race, which begins Saturday at 10 a.m.
Stage 1 will consist of a 65-mile stretch of Lorane Highway, ending on Bailey Hill Road. Stage 2 will begin Saturday afternoon. The eight-mile time trial will be contested on Lorane Highway as well.
The final stage - a 70-minute criterium - will be held Sunday beginning at 10 a.m. The route starts at the intersection of First and Lawrence streets. It then follows Cheshire to Skinner Butte Loop to Third Street and back to Lawrence.
