Spring Racing in Eastern WA

The spring racing season is almost here. It's been a few years since we've been able to claim a "season" of racing in the Spokane area. This Spring, we have six weekends of racing to brag about. That isn't counting the Tuesday night Twilight Series which runs Tuesday nights all spring and summer (more on that later). Here's what we have:

March 7th: Wawawai Landing Time Trial & Hill Climb Race. Near Pullman WA

March 28th: The Muddy Huetter Roubaix Hosted by Vertical Earth in CDA

April 3-4: Frozen Flatlands Omnium hosted by Baddlands

April 10th: Ronde van Palouse , hosted by Spokane Rocket Velo

April 11th: Rocky Mountain Roubaix, (near Missoula MT, but close enough)

April 16-18: Tour of Walla Walla, probably the biggest race in the state. Sold out already.

Mandatory race photo #9: Two points if you can name the venue ;)

There is a lot of good racing coming up this year. Thanks for all the hard work by all of the promoters. It is the Half Moon crit course at Liberty Lake.

Let me try again. Yes it's Half Moon, and yes, it should be a good year for racing in Spokane. See ya out there anonymous.

...and we have a handful of 'official' officials now.

Thanks to all who took the refresher course from USA Cyling this past weekend.

With our local pool of officals we can continue to ensure safe, competitive, and fair races!

Good work local officials!

True that, Sarah. We need them officials! There's so much that goes on behind the scenes of putting on a road race, including making sure we have our USA Cycling officials at the ready.
