Cycling

Volunteers needed — Organizers of the 2013 Bend Don’t Brake road race, scheduled for May 25 in southeast Bend, are seeking volunteers. The event features six racing categories ranging from 29.7 miles for the Women’s Masters and Juniors categories to 69.3 miles for the Men’s Pro Cat 1/2 division. Volunteers are needed to serve as course marshals and drivers and to help with event registration, set-up and cleanup. Half-day volunteer shifts (morning and afternoon) include lunch. A portion of event proceeds will benefit Bend Endurance Academy, a local nonprofit that offers cycling, nordic skiing and rock climbing programs for youth, juniors and adults. For more information or to sign up as a volunteer, visit www.benddontbrake.com or call Brenna Warburton at 541-678-3865.

Rackleff hails from Bend and currently resides in Irvine, Calif.
