Allie Dragoo’s team Twenty16-Ridebiker p/b Sho-Air blew the field away Sunday in the finale of the Cascade Cycling Classic.

Dragoo finished 6th on GC on a day that saw Twenty16’s 2016 Olympian Kristin Armstrong team up with race leader Tara Whitten and ride their rivals off their wheels.CyclingIcon

Whitten won the stage to take home the overall win in the 5-stage race. Armstrong chased Whitten across the line 12 seconds later to take second on the stage and jump from 4th to second in the final GC, 1:05 behind the winner.

Armstrong’s 2016 teammate Alison Jackson was third on the stage 1:48 behind.

Three Twenty16 teammates joined Dragoo and Armstrong in the final Top 8 on GC, giving the squad the team title by over 10 minutes.

Carmen Small of Cylance Pro Cycling, who had been shadowing Whitten since losing the leader’s jersey after the Stage 2 time trial drifted back into the field and lost 2 minutes on Sunday to finish 3rd on GC, 2:31 behind Whitten.
