Alison Powers left no doubt who is the queen against the clock at the Cascade Cycling Classic on Thursday. Finishing the 16-mile course in 34:07, Powers (NOW-Novartis), winner of Tuesday’s prologue, took top honors in the stage 2 time trial near Redmond, Oregon.

Overall leader Kristin McGrath (Exergy Twenty16) was second, at nine seconds, and defended the leader’s jersey. McGrath leads stage 1 winner Claudia Haüsler (Tibco-To the Top) by 2:20.

In the men’s race, Serghei Tvetcov (Jelly Belly-Kenda) posted the fastest time with a 30:59. Jonathan Teeter (Marc Pro-Strava) was second, at 18 seconds, edging third-placed Tom Zirbel (Optum-Kelly Benefit Strategies) by under a second.

Jakub Novak (BMC Development) took the leader’s jersey from stage 1 winner Phil Gaimon (Bissell), who lost 1:21 in the TT. Tvetcov is second, at 18 seconds. Gaimon fell to seventh, at 36 seconds.

The Cascade Classic continues Friday with the stage 3 Cascade Lakes Road Race. Men will race 92 miles and women will race 70 miles to the Mount Bachelor Ski Resort outside of Bend, Oregon.
