The start will no longer be on the road. Races will enter the trail immediately following a staggered start. Nearly all of the 16+ mile course is on single track. This extremely fast and technical course is full of large embedded rocks, tight slaloms, challenging rock gardens, and off the saddle down-hills. All expert racers will do at least a 16 mile loop. Sport racers will do at least a12 mile loop. Beginner racers will do a shortened 8-mile loop. One water station is provided along the course.

Kid's Race

The kids race will be held at 10 AM on Sunday morning just before the adult race. Young racers will be treated to a true "in the woods" kids course. All kid racers will receive medals and a hand dipped ice cream cone from the Big Bear County Store. Having the kid's race on Sunday provides a unique opportunity for the entire family to participate in a mountain bike event. Classes are ages 6 through 12, both girls and boys.

Race Classes

All WVMBA point classes. All expert classes will receive at least 100% cash payback purse and a $30 season pass to bike Big Bear. Hand thrown pottery prizes will be awarded at least 3 deep depending on class size to all other classes.
