Grand Prix Luciano Bailey Cyclocross Series: David Douglas CX
August 31 @ 7:30 am - 4:30 pm PDT
Giant Bicycles, Sellwood Cycle Repair, Castelli, and Zone 5 Promotions are proud to present the 2019 Cyclocross Grand Prix.
This year’s installment of the Grand Prix will honor Luciano Bailey. Luciano is well known as the velvet voice coming out of the announcers booth for almost every OBRA racing event in the greater Portland area. He is also an active OBRA official and sometimes racer. He’s the one of the glues that keep our racing community together. Let’s have fun celebrating Luciano with the GPLB this year!
The ‘Grand Prix Luciano Bailey’ is a Cyclocross Series composed of five independently promoted CX races. These great independent races kick off the OBRA Cyclocross season and run through the end of September. Racers from any state are welcome to race the GPLB. Series overall awards and prizes will be handed out at the GPLB series end party, in early October.
Come experience some amazing cyclocross courses, competitive racing and exciting race venues.
