Riding in Circles on Purpose

One highlight of this year’s Interbike—albeit a hard-to-find one, is the Circulus race track that’s been imported to Vegas from Portland by Portland Design Works, and which today was the stage for an epic battle between Jeremy Powers and Tim Johnson. This is the official weigh-in for the battle of the titans. Seems these guys are a bit popular with the media, no?

Just after the match I had lunch with bro Chris DiStefano of Chris King, who was nice enough to let me hop into the center of the track to cover their PDW and Paved Magazine Pro-Am Classic.

It’s not that often that you get to see guys in squirrel, hot dog and in Pokey and Gumby costumes battle it out, but that’s what you get when you bring a (round) slice of Portland to Vegas.
