Off Camber Productions launches to grow the bike racing community in the Pacific Northwest
Seattle, WA – March 11, 2022 – Off Camber Productions formally launches today to bring together two iconic Washington state bike racing institutions, MFG Cyclocross and the Wednesday Night World Championships into one company.
Off Camber’s mission is to grow the bike racing community in the Pacific Northwest by promoting events that accommodate riders of all abilities and by building programs to grow the number of kids, women, BIPOC, LGBTQ, and young adults participating.
Russell Stevenson, world & national champion cyclocross racer, with a decade of building community and promoting races in Washington state, leads the Off Camber team. Russell is surrounded by a team of professionals passionate about bike racing and with a great desire to build the bike racing community.
“The last two years has taught the world the importance of community and life experiences,” said Stevenson. “Trail systems are overwhelmed, athletics across the US has exploded, and indoor cycling is bursting with new cyclists. We believe there’s an opportunity to draw on this energy for outdoor, athletic experiences and grow the racing community.”
MFG Cyclocross was founded in 2009 and quickly became the second largest cyclocross race series in the United States, by offering a series of six races each fall at premier Seattle area venues. Off Camber purchased MFG Cyclocross from Low Pressure Promotions in December of 2021.
“When we founded MFG Cyclocross in 2009, one of our goals was to keep the series and the race day feeling fresh, accessible, and fun,” said co-founder Zac Daab. “As we pass the torch to Off Camber Productions, we are very confident in the team they’ve built to ensure MFG stays fresh. Off Camber Productions is made up of event promoters, marketers, and most importantly cyclocross enthusiasts and racers. The MFG Cyclocross community is in good hands.”
MFG Cyclocross will return in the Fall of 2022 with six races at iconic Seattle area locations. Wednesday Night World Championships kicks off its sixteen-race series on April 20, 2022 at North Seatac Park.
