Horning's Hustle MTB Race

Posted by Jonathan Maus (Publisher/Editor) on March 31st, 2009 at 7:12 pm

On Sunday April 5th, Portland Racing is bringing the Oregon MTB Series close to town with the third edition of the Horning's Hustle Mountain Bike Classic.

This early-season mountain bike race will be held at Horning's Hideout, located in the forested foothills just outside North Plains (only a 35' drive from downtown Portland).

More something like a MTB circuit race than a traditional XC MTB race, riders will do multiple laps on a 5 mile course featuring a lot of up and downs over fire roads, primitive cat tracks, some single track descents and grassy pastures. Add to the mix a couple of "huckable" logs, a creek crossing (featuring a bridge of sorts) and a clover leaf course lay-out, and you know you're in for a lot of fun. Check out this year's course map (and last year's course map) to get a rough idea of what we are talking about!

The compact course should make for a spectator-friendly race, so bring your friends and families. Like in previous years, we will also have live music, hot food, a free post-race beer for all racers 21+ and - if needed - a bonfire to keep everyone warm. In good tradition, we'll close the day with awards and we'll raffle off a bunch of cool prizes.

So dust off your bike, start hitting the trail, and join us on Sunday April 5th to kick off the season in style!

    A gauntlet has been thrown. Which ride is tougher? The Ronde or Hornings' Hustle? Or is the real test riding both and winning.

    If you think you have what it takes. A special award is being created for the highest placed man and Woman at Hornings that finished the Ronde the day before.

    Details are being worked out, over beers, somewhere in the west hills.
