Pacific Power's Oregon Junior Cyclocross Series notches second race, five more to go

The Pacific Power Oregon Junior Cyclocross Series is in full swing with two of the seven series races now under its belt.

Twenty-four juniors competed at the first race and 26 lined up for the latest running at Heiser Farms, part of the Willamette Valley Cross Series.

The junior series so far has five two-race winners who are well on their way toward the abundant swag ponied up by sponsors Redline and Kona, including four bicycles/frames. Scoring is based on the best five-of-seven races, so there's still time for others to get their hat in the ring.
Current two-race winners:

Carina Hahn (Team Rose City) Girls 17-18
Marisa Reid (Z Team) Girls 13-14
Haley Wilson (Pacific Power Blue Sky) Girls 10-12

Kolben Preble (Hammer Velo) Boys 17-18
Sam Rosenburg (Hutch's-OIC) Boys 13-14

Complete OBRA results are HERE.
The series started Sept. 13 at Eugene's Psycho Cross #1 and continues Oct. 17 at the Psycho Cross #2 in Eugene.

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 10 a.m. starts. There's more information on the race flier HERE.

The next race in the seven-race series is the Eugene Psycho Cross #2 Oct. 17.
