This is "HD" version of the race video.

Ian McKissick of BMC won the race by almost 3 minutes over the main pack, with the Dan Harm (Hagens Berman) a minute behind, and chase group another minute back with Rath Jacob (CMG) taking 3rd place in a sprint finish against Lang Raynolds (4th, Hagens Berman).
On another note, it was interesting to see that Rock Racing, Bissell and Symmetrics came to the race as well, with Erker Jacob taking 5th, and Rock Racing pulling out just before the sprint.

This northwest classic race with 2 short climbs on a 19 miles loop was attended by over 400 riders in different categories, with about 80 people in the PRO group.
