Columbia Plateau Stage Race (courtesy Marc Burgess)

Canadian women faired well in the 1998 Columbia Plateau stage race in Heppner, Oregon (April 30 to May 2), with Sandy Espeseth from Victoria B.C. winning the overall race. She had top-5 finishes through all the stages, but her best effort came during the 8 km uphill time trial, where she finished 6 seconds back at second place, which gave her the overall lead going into the last stage. During the last stage she broke away with four other riders and finished almost five minutes ahead of the field. Keep your eyes on Sandy during the Hewlett Packard race. There were a lot of Canadian women there, including Leigh Hobson, Karen Timewell, Louis Penkman, Ingrid Haesovaets and Andrea and Stepannie Hannos, to mention a few.
