Things are Heating Up in the Monthly Competitions

Thank you to all who came out for this week for Tuesday Night PIR. Results have been posted and can be found here:

The top three racers in the 1/2/3 race will have cash waiting for them at registration next Tuesday. If we didn't have money ready for you this week, be sure to pick that up as well.

The Hopworks Category 1/2/3 team competition looks like it's heating up with some teams moving up the leader board and closing in on HPChiro-RPM Mortgage. Remember that your top three riders collect points so it pays to have your teammates showing up to help out. As a reward, Hopworks is throwing down gift certificates to the top three teams; $100 for 1st, $75 for 2nd and $50 for 3rd. You'll be able to stop in to Hopworks on North Williams for a little team celebration on your way home from PIR. Here are the current standings:

1. HPChiro-RPM Mortgage Cycling Team 87
2. Gentle Lovers 66
3. Therapeutic Associates PDX Cycling 63
4. Rapha/River City Bicycles 54
5. Ironclad/Yakima 44
6. Soraz Racing p/b CAPA 42
7. Portland Bicycle Studio 26
8. Team Planet X USA 24
9. Guinness Cycling Team 23
10. Team Oregon presented by Laurelwood Brewing 22

Things in the monthly leaders competition look interesting as well. The top three racers at the end of the month in the 1/2/3, 3/4 and 4/5 categories will win gift certificates from River City Bicycles. Don't forget that the rider in the lead will wear the Castelli leader's jersey for the next month. Here are the current individual standings:
