Battle at Barlow is held at Sam Barlow High School. This classic, popular former Cross Crusade course is best known for a challenging, railroad tie stepped run-up and long off- camber section. Two gradual climbs per lap will add to the burn, but overall the course could be described as euro-style: fast, with ample room to pass.
Battle at Barlow is one of two events where racers can earn points toward a call-up at the first Cross Crusade race of the season on October 7th.
Battle at Barlow is part of the 2012 Oregon Junior Cyclocross Series. The event is the second junior race and the first High School race of the season.
OBRA membership required for all riders. Single race memberships are available for $5.00. Season OBRA memberships are available for $10.00 online or $15 at the event.

From Portland and points north and west:
Take I-84 east (Banfield Expressway) out of town and go to Exit 17. The sign for the exit is “Troutdale”. Turn right (south) as you exit. You will be on 257th Avenue which winds up the hill and in front of Mt. Hood Community College. Go about 3 1/2 miles on 257th until you reach Powell Valley Road. Turn left (East) on Powell Valley and go until you reach the Boring-Troutdale Road at the first stop sign -- that is about 2 miles. Make a right turn and then take the first left -- 0.2 miles --onto Lusted Road. You may see a small sign for Sam Barlow High School at this turn. Drive down and up hill for about 1.5 miles until you see Sam Barlow High School on your right. Drive to the stop sign turn right into the parking lot on the side of the school.
From Oregon City and points south:
Take I-205 north to the Estacada Exit -- exit for State Route 212 and 224. Turn right as you exit the Interstate to get onto 212. After about 3 miles the road splits in a “Y”, take the left fork to Damascus. Continue on Route 212 through Damascus to Boring (4 miles past Damascus). Leave Route 212 in Boring (by going straight ahead instead of taking the right turn to Sandy) and continue on 282 Avenue (the Boring-Troutdale Road) for the next 3 1/2 miles. You will see a turn to the right on Lusted Road -- and may see a small green sign to Sam Barlow High School. Take the right turn on Lusted Road and continue for 1 mile. You will see the school on your right. You may park in the large parking lots behind and at the side of the school on Lusted, or you may continue to the intersection with 302nd Ave and turn right into the parking lot on the side of the school
