Last week was the start of the David Oliphant Memorial Series. This series is a team competition that awards $1000 CASH to the top 3 teams from the 1/2/3 and 3/4 race. The top three racers from each team will be awarded points and the team with the most points at the end of the series wins the cash (this cash purse is in addition to the HUB Hopworks gift certificates already offered).
1/2/3s 1st - $300 2nd - $200 3rd - $100
3/4s 1st - $200 2nd - $150 3rd - $50
Also for the month of June, Donate Life NW will be our at PIR with a bag check option. Their tent will be located across from registration and they will hold your bag for you while you race.
The Oliphants and Donate Life Northwest are graciously giving $1000 cash to make this series happen. You have the opportunity to give as well. Visit www.donatelifenw.org to find out how you can give someone the leadout to life. As a team, we can keep people alive.
We'll be going 'round clockwise with numbers on the right tonight.
Some special notes for you tonight:
First Beer after the race is $2 at HUB Bikebar on Williams. Just show the bartender your bib number. They've been a great sponsor this year and they continue to impress.
You'll be able to register online until 2pm on the day of racing and if you register online you won't need to check in at registration, just head straight to the start line. If you've raced on Tuesdays already this season you won't need to fill out another waiver.
