Mt. Hood Women's Cycling Classic offers travel grants

The Mt. Hood Cycling Classic has announced a new partnership with Taco Del Mar restaurants to offer travel grants to all Pro 1-2 women’s teams planning to compete at this year’s event, taking place from May 31-June 4. The grants are $500 cash and are available to Pro 1-2 women’s teams of 5 or more. A total of 12 grants will be distributed for this year’s event to assist in travel costs and expenses.

"We are excited at the tremendous opportunities in the U.S. for men’s cycling with the Tour of California and Tour of Georgia along with a number of other great races. Unfortunately Pro/Elite women have not had those same opportunities," said Mt. Hood Cycling Classic event director Chad Sperry. "We have a real passion to grow women’s participation in the sport and maximize opportunities for women. This event is just too good not to get more elite women involved."
