The 2013 Cyclocross National Championships kick off in Madison, Wis. next week and at least four Oregon junior racers will be on the start line.
The long trip to middle America might not have happened for the youngsters. But thanks to a local business, the little leg-breakers are making the trek, as each of the four junior racers received a boost in the form of an $800 travel stipend.
On the Friday before December's USGP races in Bend, Sports Performance Powered by Bowen hosted a CXMas party fundraiser, featuring local and visiting 'cross pros, local 'cross photography and beer and snacks. Powered by Bowen also hosted a 'cross race fundraiser in September in Bend, Future Cross, to further assist the young racers' goals.
