Just a week after winning the junior division of the Steve Dunlap Time Trial, Santa Cruz’s Tobin Ortenblad finished 26th in the pro division of the criterium at the Mount Hood Cycling Classic, which ran from Friday to Sunday in Hood River, Ore.
Ortenblad finished in 1 hour, 2 minutes, 4 seconds — a time which matched that of winner Jeff Perrin of Lakewood, Colo — according to results on USACycling.com. Ortenblad’s other finishes in the stage race were 65th or farther back.
Ortenblad, who rides for the Ritte Elite U23 Development Team, was also recently selected to represent the USA at the UCI Cross Country World Cups this summer, according to the team’s Twitter feed.
