I am happy to announce that Kris Schamp, the organizer of the PIR Short-track XC races, has agreed to create a separate sub-category for Womens' Singlespeed at this summer's short-track series. Womens' Singlespeed will race at 6:30 p. m. with Cat 2 Women, and will be counted separately for racing singlespeed.

The short-track xc season runs from June 21 through August 2, with all races to be held at Portland International Raceway.

Stay tuned to this website for registration details:

And please, PLEASE be sure to jot a thank-you note to Kris Schamp for agreeing to be the first to create a separate Singlespeed category just for the ladies! (His contact info can be found at the Portland Racing Web site.)

I am so happy it's ridiculous.

No guarantees, of course, that this will provide enough momentum to add Womens' Singlespeed to the Cross Crusade races in the fall. But I am happy all the same. I hope enough women will sign up for the category during short-track season to give it legitimacy so it will survive more than a single season.

(If you race in or near Portland, tell your friends. I'd like to see at least forty women sign up for the category this first year!)
