The beauty of downtown Camas will be on display when the Camas Twilight Criterium returns on Saturday, July 31, for the first time in five years.
David Hart co-directed the event through North River Racing between 2000 and 2004, before it relocated to downtown Vancouver. Hart moved to Camas in 2007.
“Now that I live here, I thought I would address the idea of having a bike race through downtown,” Hart said. “I like the small community feel. A lot of people live right here in downtown. You don’t have to sit through a lot of rush hour traffic to get down here.”
Hart is the race director and Ed Fisher, owner of Camas Bike & Sport, is the promoter.
“There is a lot of great racing in Oregon. I live in Camas, and I want people to see what my downtown is like,” Hart said. “Camas has a lot to offer, a lot of beauty and a lot of business.”
