Portland Short Track MTB Series
July 23 at 4:00 pm - 8:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00pm on Monday, repeating until July 30, 2018
The 2018 edition of the Portland Short Track Series is upon us – starting on Monday June 4 and running through Monday July 30 – and we invite you and your friends to come join us on the infield of Portland International Raceway for two months of summer bike race fun!
Race Format & Course Description:
The course – which we will change up every week – is a combination of grassy flats, twisty singletrack (under the trees), and rolling dirt track (on the motocross course). The typical lap distance is about 1.0 mile and racers will do multiple laps for the duration of their race (see schedule below). Everyone finishes on the same lap as the race leader in their race heat, regardless of whether you get lapped.
The course is pretty flat and doesn’t feature any major climbing (elevation gain per lap is only 20 to 40 ft), so you don’t need a lightweight bike to rock this race. Indeed, folks are racing on all types of mountain bikes, cyclocross bikes – and even BMX bikes – at Short Track!
