2015 promises to be a great year with OBRA and the 2015 Junior series. Want to get involved?
Some initial details on the Junior category inside of the Oregon Off-Road series
All events in the Oregon Off-road Series will have Junior categories as 10-12, 13-14. 15-16, 17-18 for Men and Women with Podiums pics
Faster Juniors that would typically race Sport (cat 2) in 2014 can race up with the 19-39 Men for the Oregon Off-road series in 2015 if they want more competition and are of an advanced ability and be split out for Final Series awards and The Champion jersey. This age group is 14-18 for the Oregon Off-Road Series and results will be split out on Athlete Path results
Junior MTB Series
New logo coming
The Junior MTB Series (Separate but inclusive within 4 of the Oregon Off-Road Series ) will feature 5 events and the best 3 of 5 races for overall points culminating at Alsea Falls at the State Championships and MTB festival.
All of the events in the Junior MTB Series will have most kids on course for around an hr give or take 15 minutes in most cases.*
*This is necessary to not overwhelm the riders and also for them to work on both speed and technique as they become more confident racers.
- Age groups are the same 10-12, 13-14. 15-16, 17-18 for Men and Women on the short course
- Best 3 of 5 events in the Junior MTB Series
- Unique plates and sequence for all Junior MTB Series racers can be picked up at Mudslinger or any Junior MTB Series event
- Each Participant will receive 1 raffle ticket per event to use at Alsea Falls at the final event
- Podiums at each event and Final series awards at Alsea Falls in early August.
The best 3 of 5 in the Junior MTB series will give a faster junior the opportunity to race up at some events by participating in the Oregon Off-Road Series exclusively in the 19-39 Sport (Cat 2) mens group. (see above) or racing in both!
We typically have 2-10 faster Junior men at each event and some events they may want to test themselves against older competition and will score points for 14-18 in the Oregon Off-Road Series split out after the race.
State championship will include 2 year age break downs and Junior Series finals along with a division for advanced juniors as well.
