Details, Details, Details & a Warning

Due to popular demand we have added two new categories for the series, Men's 50+ and 60+. They'll be racing in the 5:55pm time slot and so long as folks are into it we'll have it on the schedule for the rest of the series.

I can't quite believe the amount of great coverage that our local photogs can produce each week. Some highlights from around our world:

Jake Tong with The Wolf's Mouth capturing all of my favorite folks: 

Dan from Yung Pine with a brief Norse mythology discussion: 

Did you see this video?

In the bummer category I need to warn all of you about something that occurred along the Columbia Slough bike path on the way to PIR last week and advise that you stay off of it for the remainder of the season. Skjelse Rapoch was riding out to the race when she was hit by a rock thrown at her and knocked from her bike. She's in a pretty bad way and racking up the bills pretty quickly. Please do what you can to help her and her family out on her gofundme site. Our community is a great one so I have no doubt that folks will do what they can. 

Results and standings can always be found here.

Clinics happen every week before the start of the races. If you want to get some expert instruction at the hands of a professional, stop by the PBS tent at 5:30.

Registration for today’s race will be open until 3pm and will be $18. The price goes up to $22 if you register at the race. We’re happy either way, just make sure that you burn enough calories to enjoy that slice of Tastebud pizza after your race (and maybe a beer).

 

Photos, Limited Edition Caps and Free Wheels & Power Meters

Can we start with the amazing photos that I saw from last week? In case you missed them there are some choice ones posted over at The Wolf’s Mouth and some great words and photos at Yung Pine.

We have some great sponsors on board again this year and that includes Stages. Not only are they providing that sweet, sweet holeshot money but they’re also at all of the races with demo models. Ever interested in how badly you fade after lap three? You can now know. Better yet, see how many watts you’re throwing down off the line. Stop by their tent before your race and they’ll get you set up.

Now I know not all of you are running carbon wheels yet but you have no excuse at the Trophy Cup races this season. Knight Composites is at the races each week with a full selection of wheels for you to try out. Disc brakes? Check. Rim brakes? Check. Through-axles? Totally. Treat yourself and give them a shot.

There were some reports of folks driving a little quickly coming into the track last week. I’m not sure if they were one of us but remember, the racing happens out on the course, not in the parking lot.
