HOOD RIVER — Kristin Armstrong (Peanut Butter & Co. Twenty 12) fired the first shot in the showdown with fellow Olympian Clara Hughes (Pactimo Cycling Team) Thursday at the prologue time trial of the 2011 Mt. Hood Cycling Classic. Armstrong covered the three-mile prologue eight seconds faster than her Canadian rival Hughes. Armstrong’s teammate Alison Starnes was third, 16 seconds behind the leader.

In the men’s opener, Chad Haga of Colorado’s Team Rio Grande bested teammate Scott Tietzel by four seconds to take the first leader’s jersey of the race. Keller Rohrback’s Dan Harm, of Seattle, was third just 6 seconds back.

The race continues Friday with the Columbia Gorge Road Race, which takes riders on a loop between Mosier and The Dalles. The men tackle 84 miles, and the women will race for 56.
