Portland Trophy Cup Cyclocross Series
September 25, 2018 at 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00pm on Tuesday, repeating until October 2, 2018
WHAT THE HELL IS TROPHY CUP?
Probably the best thing you could be doing on a Tuesday night. Definitely the most fun you’ll have at a bike race this year. A 5-race series that runs from September 4th – October 2nd.
Although the course is subject to change each evening, expect a fast early season course with a few technical sections. There will be 2-3 barrier sections each lap and plenty of opportunities to practice your cornering skills. There will be variety with a new course each week but all races will feature the signature off camber turns in the tree-filled section.
The course, beer garden, registration, and first aid are located on the infield of the race track. You can reach the raceway by bicycle (always the preferred method) or via the MAX yellow line. Follow signs to motocross course. If you must drive, there is parking on the outside of the course. Please be cautious and aware that other cyclists will be present.
