Junior Cyclocross Series revs up in Eugene

EUGENE -- Race #1 of the Pacific Power Junior Cyclocross Series is in the books with more than 20 young Oregon riders well on their way to a chance of winning one of four 'cross bikes at the end of the eight-race stretch.

The series is intended to encourage junior participation in cyclocross and build the kind of grassroots program that has produced so many great national- and international-level riders on the road and mountain bike.

The series started Sunday at Eugene's Psycho Cross #1 and continues Oct. 3 at the Willamette Valley Cross in Salem.

There will be two grand prizes for the Girls, and two for the Boys. The grand prizes will be awarded on a lottery system, with one lottery ticket per race entered. The series winner will get 15 additional lottery tickets, 14 more for second, and so on. The grand prize lottery will be on the Nov. 29 race In Eugene. Riders do not need to be present to win but must participate in at least 4 races to qualify. Scoring is based on the best five of seven races.

Entry is just $5 per race and there will be a free 10 minute cyclocross clinic before the 10am starts.
