Portland Racing is kick-starting the 2008 OBRA MTB Series close to town with the inaugural Horning’s Hustle XC MTB Season Opener.

This all-new mountain bike race will be held at Horning’s Hideout, located in the forested foothills just outside North Plains (only a 35’ drive from downtown Portland).

The compact course should make for a spectator-friendly race. So bring your friends and families. Hey, they can even cast their fishing lines in the local pond, while you are suffering your way up the hill… To top it off, we’ll have music, hot drinks and food and a bonfire to keep everyone warm. In good tradition, we’ll close the day with awards and we’ll raffle off a bunch of cool prizes.

Cross Country

Cost: Pro/Elite, Expert and Sport Racers ($20.00), Beginners ($15.00), Juniors ($10.00) + $5 day of race
License: OBRA (Oregon Bike Racing Assoc)
Course Description: More something like a MTB circuit race than a traditional XC MTB race, riders will do multiple 20-30’ laps on a 4 mile course featuring a lot of up and downs over fire roads, primitive cat tracks, some single track descents and grassy pastures. Add to the mix a couple of “huckable” logs, a creek crossing (featuring a bridge of sorts) and a clover leaf course lay-out, and you know you’re in for a lot of fun. Check out the course map to get a rough idea of what we are talking about!
