The site — which has hosted bike racing since the mid 1970s — is home to popular road racing events held each Monday and Tuesday during the summer as well as mountain bike and cyclocross racing.
Saltzman’s visit was coordinated by Monday Night Racing Series organizer Jim Anderson. Anderson says the event, “will give the OBRA (Oregon Bicycle Racing Association) community an opportunity to share with the commissioner how they have benefited from this venue.”
Saltzman plans to tour the racetrack area, meet with OBRA officials, chat with racers, and be the official race starter. Saltzman is scheduled to be present from 6-8pm.
NOTE: At BikePortland, we love your comments. We love them so much that we devote many hours every week to read them and make sure they are productive, inclusive, and supportive (heck, sometimes we even fix your typos!). That doesn't mean you can't disagree with someone. It means you must do it with tact and respect. This is our business and we do not tolerate mean commenters who add nothing of value to the discussion. Unfortunately, we are not robots and we don't always catch everything. You can help by notifying us if you see inappropriate comments. Thanks! — Jonathan and Michael
