The fun at the Oregon State Fairgrounds continues tonight with the 3 rd race in the LifeSource Natural Foods MTB Short Track series. Everyone from beginners to pro racers are welcome to attend, watch, or race – with categories for any skill level. Registration and course pre-ride begins at 5 pm, with the best entrance to the track on the Sunnyview side of the Fairgrounds.
Spectators can watch from the bleachers or grass, play in the sand volleyball area, or bring a skateboard and drop into the halfpipe. You can read our recap from a previous week here, and see a bunch of photos on Flickr here. Also be sure to see some other great photos and videos Matt took over at the Buy Local Cycling site.
Hope to see you tonight!
