Portland Short Track MTB Race Series
June 19 at 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:00pm on Monday, repeating until July 31, 2017
Portland Short Track Series presented by Hopworks Brewery
The race format will be the same as previous years (25-30′ races on the PIR motocross track and surrounding area under the trees), but we made some important changes to the weekly race schedule: this year, we will start a little later (free kids races at 6pm, adult/jr races starting at 6:15pm) and we will feature 3 main race heats instead of 4. This should give everyone some more time to get to PIR and the race fields will feel a little more packed, which we hope will further enhance the racer experience and specator value. At the same time, the courses will be a little longer, in order to keep congestion on the course to a minimum. Finally, starting week 2 or 3, we plan to throw in some new course features (read: more dirt outside the motocross track) to make things even more interesting and exciting.
Each night of the series, we will host two FREE clinics from 5 to 6pm (one for Women and one for Novice/Jr Men) and three FREE kids races (from 6 to 6:15pm) for kids of all ages. Every week, we will also raffle off a bunch of cool prizes among all racers.
