visiting seattle, looking for races
So im going to be visiting nw seattle for a bit in mid august and since Im going to have my bikes out there with me I figured Id try to find something to race while Im out there. I didnt find too much on bikereg for that area. Does anyone know of any weekly crits or basically any types of races going on out there? Im staying in nw seattle but will most likely have some access to a car to travel a bit further away if I need to.
On the other side of things Im also looking for some recommended spots to put the mt bike to use. Ill also be taking my prophet mx with me out there so any tips on where to take that out would be awesome too!
Cannot help you on road races.
There are a few Mountain Bike races going in the area in August.
Two places to get MTB information:
1. www.evergreenmtb.org (look on the calendar in august)
2. Look at the sticky in the Washington forum on mtbr.com, post in that forum if you have questions
Check out http://www.wsbaracing.org for local races.
On Thursdays, there is a local weekly crit at Seward Park.
On Tuesdays, there is a local weekly race at Pacific Raceways in Kent.
