'09 US championship back to Portland?

The organisers of the US Gran Prix of Cyclo-cross Portland Cup hinted last weekend that next year could see the return of the US Cyclo-cross championships to Oregon. Portland Cup organiser Brad Ross announced that the move "to our state" was not yet confirmed, but that it appeared to be a strong possibility.

According to Cyclo-cross Magazine, the bid from Oregon comes from the town of Bend, about three hours southeast of Portland. Another bid has been submitted from eastern Washington, giving the Pacific Northwest a strong chance of hosting the national championships next year.
