Morgan Cabot celebrates her win in Sunday’s White Spot Road Race at the Tour de Delta.

Upsets at Tour de Delta

Morgan Cabot, Steve Fisher win road races on Sunday

A couple of upsets at the White Spot Road Race brought a dramatic finish to the Tour de Delta Sunday afternoon.

Morgan Cabot, in just her third season of racing, won the women’s side. Then Steve Fisher of Bellingham took the men’s race to clinch the 2012 Tour de Delta Omnium (overall) title.

“The team motto is believe in your dreams and my dream has been to win a Cat 1 race and I never thought I could do it,” said Cabot, who rode for local club team Glotman Simpson. “I can’t stop smiling.”

Cabot finished 11th in the Omnium standings, Sunday’s win coming in the last of three events. Stephanie Roorda was the overall champion, winning Saturday’s Brenco Criterium and placing second in both Sunday’s road race and Friday’s MK Delta Criterium.

Fisher won a sprint to the finish line Sunday, taking the road race win and overall title for his Hagens Berman Cycling team.

“This is definitely my biggest result ever,” said Fisher, 22, after winning a race that included Pro Tour riders Christian Meier and Svein Tuft of Orica-GreenEDGE. “It’s an awesome experience just to be racing with those guys, and better if you can beat them on a single day.”

Fisher left Tuesday to race for the US under-23 team in Europe. He finished second in Saturday’s Criterium, and fifth in Friday’s event. Tuft, from Langley, won Friday’s event, while Ryan Anderson topped the field Saturday.
