Just because Portland isn't known as a mountain biking mecca (yet), doesn't mean we don't have our share of mountain bike news. Check out the updates on several fronts below...
Helltrack at The Lumberyard
The Lumberyard has partnered up with PlusSizeBMX on an interesting event next month: They call it "Helltrack." According to The Lumberyard's event coordinator Amy Hardesty, Helltrack is a "multi-lap obstacle race with nine riders going head-to-head that combines indoor and outdoor features, a cereal bowl, pallets, bikes, beer, jumps, UCI Bro Barriers, Carnage, and good times." There are racing categories for all types of riders (even kids!) and everyone is welcome. The course runs inside and outside The Lumberyard and there's an after-party sponsored by Red Bull. Event dates are November 23-24th and registration is $20-25 per race. More info at LumberyardMTB.com or follow updates on the Facebook event page.
