Race Information

October 3: Race #1 – Heiser Farm (Dayton, OR)
One of the best venues Oregon cross has to offer, Heiser Farms. John Heiser has an amazing farm outside of Dayton, OR where spectators have as much fun as the racers. John offers hay rides to and from his pumpkin patch, corn/hay mazes, delicious food, a petting zoo, and a hay castle. Did we mention the pumpkin cannon? The crew from pdxcross.com captured the fun and the muck in 2008.

October 24: Race #2 – Battlecreek Cross (Salem, OR)
This old South Salem golf course provides for some unregulated fun in sandpits. No putting wedge necessary; just a solid drivetrain! Anyone who prefers sand traps to run ups will enjoy this course.  The only bumps on the course were created by the resident moles, can you say FAST!

November 7: Race #3 OBRA Cyclocross Championships (Salem, OR)
Bicycleattorney.com OBRA Championships at the Oregon State Fairgrounds: Where to begin? The four buildings you'll ride through and your partner/family will appreciate? The indoor Hopworks beer garden adjacent to the course? Possibly the live band? Waffles and Belgian style fries for fuel? This will be a Belgium style cyclocross festival for sure!
