The Cascade Chainbreaker, which features cross-country racing for riders of various skill levels, typically attracts more than 300 mountain bikers from Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Northern California. It will be one of the largest mountain bike races in Oregon this year and it will allow riders to experience some of Bend’s best springtime riding. The course is on Cascade Timberlands property (formerly owned by Crown Pacific), which is west of Bend off Shevlin Park Road and will allow contestants to experience some of the rustic remains of early 1900’s logging camps and tremendous Central Oregon scenery and terrain. The cross-country race is the part of the Oregon Off-Road Series which encourages racers from across Oregon to travel to select races over the duration of the season. These events are fundraisers for the Bend Endurance Academy. Riders take several trips through the stadium area to make spectating and cheering fun for families, along with free kid’s races, food and drinks available on site. Both events are fundraisers for the Bend Endurance Academy and are held on private land with the generous support of several sponsors.
