Portland Monday night racing set for 12th year

Summertime Monday night racing will resume for its 12th season at the Portland International Raceway (PIR) from May 5 to August 25 (except no racing on July 21).

"Bicycle racing continues to grow at PIR, and we see new racers each year trying it out," said series organizers Jim Anderson, "We are adding clinics for novice women who want to see what the sport is all about, in hopes of seeing a growth in the women's fields. Also, with the addition of the track being repaved, we expect our great bike racing venue to be packed with racers this summer ­ right in Portland's back yard."

The new clinics will run on the second Monday of each month and will focus on the basics of how to get started in racing. There will be a brief intro talk prior to the race start, and followed by debriefing after the race led by experienced female racers. Clinics will run approximately 30 minutes before the race and 30 minutes after the women's race finishes.

All levels and abilities are welcomed and encouraged to attend and novice races will be held for both masters men and women. For more information, visit www.racemondaynight.com.
