Well, at least the pre-season. Cross clinics run every Wednesday evening at 6:00pm at Alpenrose through September. The skills clinic will be followed by a "low key" practice race.

We have a training race series, too, in the Bay area. The DFL guys run it, except some of their races are somewhat illegal. Also, you have wear a dress or your mother's wig to compete. Never done 'em myself, though.
Is this the same venue that will host nats?Dwayne Barry

If so, how are the courses typically laid out?

I believe that the promoters are still nailing down dates for the venues. OBRA ( has a Cross Crusade race listed for every Sunday in October and November plus one on the first Sunday of December. It is my understanding that there will only be 7-8 races this year -- last year there were 8 -- and not the 10 that the OBRA schedule would imply.

I am almost certain that the first race will be Oct 4 at Alpenrose.

I went to the clinic last night and it was very good. There was a mix of beginners to very experienced and things were as organized as could be with two coaches trying to heard 20 cyclists around an open field. Most riders had cross bikes but there were a few mt. bikes in the mix. So to any PDX crossers -- get out there and polish your skillz.
