Wonderful Whitman Winners!

The Whitman College cycling team is the womb from which really fast bicycle racers are born. Holy shit did Whitman aumni have a good day:

Today, Mara Abbott won her second consecutive stage of the Women's Giro de Italia, further extending her lead, and setting herself up to be the first American woman to win this stage race. She did so wearing the US champion's jersey, freshly awarded a mere two weeks ago in Bend Oregon. Mara's success is staggering -- she is now the undisputed best climber in the world. Mara, congratulations.

Also, Ben Chaddock astonished the field at the Tour of Delta by FRIGGIN WINNING THE PROLOGUE!! AHEAD OF SVEIN TUFT!!!  What the fuck Ben? Amazing job! Read Ben's blog here.

That might not be all -- there are lots of other bike races going on around the country -- Whitties, am I missing anyone?
