Bear Springs Trap XC and Short Track race takes place every spring on Mt.Hood and has been a Sellwood Cycle Repair sponsored event for many years. On April 28th,  three ladies, Remy, Mary and Lisa, contested the very challenging mountain course that include 15% grade climbs, a forest of gnarled, boggy roots, rock gardens and a mine field of shale.
In the Cat 2 under 40 group, Remy showed off her conditioning on the 20 mile course with 9th place beating some tough competition. Mary upgraded to the Cat 2 group after Echo Red to Red and took 5th showing that she is right where she needs to be.
Lisa, taking 2nd place behind the Bend, OR powerhouse Alice Drobna in the 30+ mile singlespeed category, had this to say about her day:
“Bear Springs was memorable this year mostly for the unusually dry conditions and no snow on the course. It made riding the root sections a pleasure compared to previous years’ off the bike slippery jog. Very fun race and good hard work!”
Lisa takes 1st!

Lisa Earns Silver!
