Orofino LoggerXross coming May 14

The exciting Orofino LoggerXross event is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 at Orofino City Park.

Due to trademark issues with the term Endurocross, the group that is organizing this year’s event elected to call it the Orofino LoggerXcross. “We felt like honoring our community and workers, since our mission is to put on a community oriented race; a race that is for the community,” said organizer Jim Willis.

The Orofino LoggerXcross will carry on the tradition of motorbike racing in the Orofino City Park’s fairground arena. Track designers for this year’s event are very excited as they work to create a layout that will provide an incredible show for spectators while giving riders a thrilling set of obstacles and challenges.

Professional rider confirmations have already come in. Everything is in motion for the creation of another spectacular event. “We have had an uproar of support from the community, and are very excited for this event. We have great hopes to put on this race, and have so many people working hard for it. We are ready to make it happen!” said organizer Kim Bonnalie.

Organizers meet every Thursday at at Camas Financial Services, located at 230 Johnson Avenue in Orofino. Anyone who can help in any way is invited to attend.
