Portland Short Track Series - Summer of 2019
During summer in Portland, there are several amazing opportunities for bike racers to get their pedal on…but for a dirt-focused squad like ours the favorite is Portland Racing’s 8 race Portland Short Track Series, when on four Monday evening’s in June and four Monday evenings in July mountain bike racers meet up at Portland International Raceway, at the motocross track in the infield—to race a technical and featured dirt race course HARD OUT for ~50 minutes.
The result is some of the heaviest breathing our athletes subject themselves to all year, a lot of sweat and trails of dust…
We’re cyclocross specialists, and usually save our heaviest punches for cross season (September through December) but over the past few years PDXTi teammates Andrew Coe and Mitchell Trux have been ripping into this summer time series, and with increasing consistency, finding themselves on champion’s podium.
This season, with 4 wins, three 2nd place finishes and one 3rd place finish, Andrew was the outstanding series leader and overall Series Champion.
With two wins of his own, two 2nds, two 3rds and a 4th Mitch was right behind him in 2nd on the Overall Series Podium.
The dudes crushed it.
