    Mt. Hood Cycling Classic input

    Hey guys,
    I'm just looking for some feedback on this race, as I'm considering coming in from out of state to race. I was specifically wondering about the "typical" conditions (I hear the gorge is known for its wind) as well as the TT course profile. The map on the website looks like there's a few short "climbs" with a couple hundred feet elevation gain overall but I'm assuming riders generally use the usual TT set-up including TT bikes and disc wheels?
    How about suggestions on lodging? I've seen a few cheaper hotels in Dalles (sp?) about 15 minutes away from Hood River and will most likely stay there.
    Thanks in advance for your input!

    It is "The Dalles". Hood River has Full Sail and Dark Horse. The food at Full Sail is as good as the beer. Dark Horse food is not so good as the beer. When I lived in The Dalles, I rode a motorcycle. At times we laid on the bike because of the wind.
