This event occured in the past

This "newer" Mountain Bike Race to the R.A.C.E. Events will prove to be a classic in the years to come - we hope!

Prizes to the Top 3 Overall Finishers!!

Registration will open at 8:00am, with the race starting at 9:00am, at the Centerville Bridge in Centerville, California......just down the street from Center Gap Road. The course starts on pavement, and goes to Center Gap Road - where the riders will make a Right-Turn to go up Center Gap Road(the off-road section starts here). The riders will continue on Center Gap, then continue on/up Doe Mill Road, but bypass both Schott Road & Garland Road......continuing on Doe Mill up, then down.....to The Skyway in Magalia, CA. From Skyway, the riders will take Humbug Road to Nimshew Road. Nimshew will bring you to the dirt section of Centerville Road - where you will descend down the dirt road until you get to the paved section of Centerville Road. The riders will travel down through the little town of Centerville, and then finish back where you started - at the Centerville Bridge.

The course is 25 miles in length, includes approximately 3,000 feet of climbing(and descending), and is made up primarily of fire roads and some paved sections. Study the map CLOSELY - or bring a GPS(or, preferably, both!). The turns will not be marked, making this an "Adventure" Race as well.

I would like to give a HUGE Thank You to Joe Shelburne for showing me this course first-hand, and helping to map it out. His help was invaluable in getting this race going. And, this course is going to be some fun fun!!

Held Rain or Shine!
Helmets are MANDATORY!
(Will have goodies at the end).
