The allure of intermingled mountain ranges, rivers, canyons and communities are a few of the many reasons this ride was organized. I am so proud of the geography of our area, and the fact that we have 300 cyclists here that appreciate what we have to offer is such an honor, said Yreka Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Kory Hayden. From the availability of massages at Mountain Healing Spa to swimming, and music in the park, Etna really welcomed the bikers to experience Scott Valleys culture. Tuesday Etna will even close downtown to host a street jam in honor of the cyclists. There will be live music, pie, popcorn and crafts.

So we’ll see.” This time, it’s McIlroy who has to chase. “My goal today was to try and get in the final group,” McIlroy said. “Sergio didn’t quite have that luxury of seeing what I was doing on the last. It will be nice to play alongside him tomorrow and at least keep an eye on what’s going on. Try to apply a bit of pressure when I can, but just really looking forward to getting in there and having another chance to win a tournament so soon after what happened at Hoylake.” Rickie Fowler also was in the hunt at Hoylake, though he took himself out of the picture on the final hole. He went from the left trees to a plugged lie in the bunker, having to brace his right good against the side of a hill.

This isn’t a two-man race for a World Golf Championship title. Marc Leishman had a 68 and was five shots behind, while Adam Scott returned from the rain delay carrying only his long putter, the only weapon he needed to convert one last birdie for a 65 that at least left him with a slim chance. He was six shots behind, along with Keegan Bradley (68) and Justin Rose (70). The race won’t feature defending champion Tiger Woods . The eight-time winner at Firestone made only one birdie on Saturday — he failed to birdie a par 5 for the second straight day — and shot 72.
