West End Bikes and Portland Racing are proud to present the 11th edition of the Kruger’s Crossing Cyclocross Classic, which will double as the OBRA 2017 CYCLOCROSS STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS and the Portland-area race season closer!
This fun AND epic race – a longtime favorite with racers and spectators alike – will take place at Kruger’s Farm, located in the beautiful countryside of Sauvie Island (only 20 minutes from downtown Portland!).
This will NOT be your usual cross race! Besides the challenges thrown at us by the November weather gods, you can expect a wild course that will lead you along rutted farm roads, through berry fields, pastures, a barn, and a hoop house, with a six-pack barrier and hay bale barrier thrown in for good measure.
Nossa Familia will be on hand with gourmet coffee throughout the morning, Kruger’s Farm Market will serve veggie chili, baked potatoes, hot soup, and a variety of sausages and other grilled goodies, and around noon, Hopworks Urban Brewery will come out to serve free samples of their much-acclaimed Abominable Winter Ale and some other HUB classics.
In good tradition, we’ll lighten up a giant bonfire along the course to keep everyone warm and toasty, we’ll have DJ-ed music (and continuous race announcing by Luciano), free kiddie races, and throughout the day we will raffle off a ton of prizes, courtesy of our presenting sponsor West End Bikes and our other generous sponsors.
Last but not least, we’ll stage another encore of the Doggie Dash CX World Championship benefiting The Pixie Project. This all-for-fun cross race (sans bikes) for your four-legged friends of all stripes and colors (lycra dog team kits strongly encouraged!) is a hoot for racers, dogs, and spectators alike.
