Who says Portland is a bummer place for mountain biking?! Tonight there are two free events where you can get your dirt riding stoke on by hanging out with pros who want to share their knowledge with you. Oh, and you’re almost guaranteed to win some great schwag just for showing up.
Check details below…
MTB pro Sonya Looney at Portland Bicycle Studio (1435 NW Raleigh) 6-7:30 pm (Facebook)
Enduro Clinic and Q & A – 6:30 pm at Evo Portland (200 SE MLK)
So you’ve just signed up for your first enduro mountain bike race. Maybe you’re asking yourself, “What did I just sign up for, am I in over my head?” Or maybe you’ve already got a couple races under your belt but want to edge out your friends. Wheelie Drops and Bunny Hops: Secrets to Staying Pinned with Matthew Slaven and Lars Sternberg is here to help
With the growing popularity of “enduro” format racing and the advancements in all-mountain and trail bike capabilities, evo has partnered with two of the NW’s fastest mountain bikers to collaborate and host clinics at both Portland and Seattle stores. ‘Wheelie Drops and Bunny Hops’ is an enduro focused town hall style Q&A session, where Matthew Slaven and Lars Sternberg will be answering questions covering all aspects of this style of riding and racing. Portland will take place on Wednesday April 29, and Seattle the following evening, Thursday April 30. We will have Lars and Matthew’s bikes and accessories on display for folks to see how they ride, and with what gear. It should be a fun couple of evenings – of course, evo will be providing snacks and libations to make sure everyone has a good time.
We’ve got some rad prizes to give away from Lars and Matthew’s sponsors – Transition Bikes, Cycles Devinci, Smith Optics, DAKINE, Bell Bike Helmets, Five Ten, GiroSportDesign and of course, evo. On top of that, we’ll be giving away a registration spot in Seattle to a Cascadia Dirt Cup race, and a spot in one of the Oregon Enduro Series races in Portland.
