RACE REPORT: 2007 Shasta Lemurian

Results have been posted for last weekend's Shasta Lemurian:
Congratulations to Long Course winners Tim Olson (Chico, CA) and Sarah Maile (Sacramento, CA), who edged out Sharon Hill (San Jose, CA) by 11 seconds. The course looked similar to last year's event, though maybe a little bit more climbing.

A few race reports and photos have been posted over at MTBR. also has a few photos.

RACE REPORT: Lake Sonoma

A few reports have surfaced about last weekend's new Lake Sonoma Series:
This Saturday turned out to be better than I had imagined. 36 riders showed up to open the summer at Lake Sonoma on the wonderfully refurbished single track, raced, drank, ate, and were merry. Some came from as far away as Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Davis, Sacramento, and Vancouver Canada...[more]
I'm not sure if they actually keep score out there -- we may or may not see results.

NorCal Racing This Weekend: April 27 - 29

This weekend you've got lots of racing options, but chances are you'll need a bit of a roadtrip to get there:
  • Up north is this year's running of the annual Shasta Lemurian. Held north of Redding, CA, the Lemurian is the traditional opening of the "Way NorCal" racing season. You can see maps and photos from last year's events in the archives.
  • Billy Cross racing is back with a new name ("Lake Sonoma Series"), a new look and new organizers in the North Bay. From the organizers at "With the help of many volunteers, nearly 200 man hours of work has gone into revitalizing 4.5 miles of some of the funnest, twistiest single track this side of the moon. The original Billy Cross races are back, under new directorship, and under a new name - The Lake Sonoma Series. 6 races, six months. Registration is only $20 and it includes burgers and drinks! There aren't even any freaking NORBA fees!!"
  • Finally, this weekend also bringa the closest pass of NORBA to Norcal. The 2007 Firestone Walker is now a NORBA event so if you want to see the big show, truck down towards San Luis Obispo.
It should be a great weekend.


Photos have been posted for the fourth PCRS Spring race. It looks like there were a lot drier conditions than last week and the same large crowd of racers.

UPDATE (04/27/07): Results are posted.

Cal State Championship Series (Details)

A good thread over at MTBR explains the California State Championship series split into NorCal and SoCal plus the one day championship. Some of the text:
For years mountain bike racers have enjoyed the California State Championship Series. With races as far south as San Diego and as far north as Humboldt County, the series provided racers with opportunities to experience the varied terrains and beauty of California. But the series was also at times very difficult due to the sheer size of the state, with racers sometimes facing a round trip of 1500 miles or more. So for 2007 the state was divided in two to create a Southern California State Championship Series and a Northern California State Championship Series, with Team Bigfoot coordinating the NorCal races and Team Big Bear seeing to the details of the SoCal series.

It wasn’t long before some sharp racer asked, “If I win my NorCal title and someone down South takes my category’s SoCal title, who’s the overall California State Champ?” So Team Bigfoot CEO Vic Armijo worked with Tom Spiegel of Team Big Bear in taking a page from NORBA’s pro championship and doing one-day events for each discipline, Cross-Country, Short-Track XC, Super-D and Downhill. For ’07 the coveted overall California State Championship will be decided at the Sock Guy Lagrange Fall Classic in Weaverville, California. Next year the overall will be decided in SoCal, probably Big Bear and Fontana. “Ideally we would have liked to have the overall event earlier in the season,” says Armijo, “But the only other NorCal venue on the calendar that could host all the disciplines is the Bigfoot Classic, which due to scheduling constraints has to be the same weekend as the USA Cycling National Championships in Mt. Snow, Vermont.”

So Weaverville it is, located about 30-minutes West of Redding.
When they talk about Weaverville, this is the Lagrange Fall Classic on October 21st weekend.

RACE REPORT: Napa Valley Dirt Classic

Results have been posted for 2007 Napa Valley Dirt Classic. In this year's Men's Pro race, David Yakaitis edged Mark Weir by 27 seconds for the win (although both may have been beaten by Semi-Pro Corey Ward). In the Ladies Pro race, Emily Van Meter edge Barbara Howe.

A race report (along with some photos) is posted over at MTBR.

Rainy Sunday

If you are getting up later this morning to go do the CHDH #1, Napa Valley Dirt Classic or the Jetway Rainbow Ridge Challenge, you'd better grab your rain gear, breakout the towels for the truck and dress warmly.
It's raining cats and dogs through the Bay Area and Tahoe's getting snow.

Thursday, April 19, 2007

MTBR Special Sea Otter Site has posted a special section filled with stories, photos, race results and videos from last weekend's Sea Otter Classic. Well worth a look-see.


Photos have been posted for the third Prairie City Race Series. Tonight's race was held under beautiful conditions.

The organizers also announced that mandatory upgrades are coming next week:
Unlike years previous where upgrades were encouraged but optional, this year we are implementing a new system to ensure fair, quality racing in each class through Race Director controlled upgrades. This means if you are in the points hunt it is best to be in your proper competitive class right from the beginning. SO... similar to NORBA rules if you place in the top 3 in your first 3 races be prepared to be upgraded.
Results will be posted when they are available. Results are up.

Tahoe Sierra 100 coming ?

No confirmation on this, as I have only saw it on a MTBR posting and heard about it through some other people, but:
The Tahoe-Sierra 100 miler and 4 person team stage race is coming. Its been two years in the works and its almost ready. This event will be one of a kind. The views are great and lots of single track. There will be a 100 mile race and a two day team stage race. 50 mile stage for each team member, lots of team strategy will come into play. This event will benefit the high country trails systems that are in need of lots of work.
And this small bit on the Downieville Classic site:
the lowdown on the Sierra Crown trans-sierra mountain bike stage race
7 days / 6 nights / 2 person teams / BIG adventure
Yes, it sounds cool.

2007 Friends of Tamarancho

Velo Club Fairfax is again presenting the 2007 Fairfax Fat Tire Festival, featuring the Friends of Tamarancho Invitational race. This year's festival/race will be held earlier in the season, over the May 12 - 13 weekend. The race (Sunday, May 13th) will feature the same course as previous years will be used, with two trail and two fire road sections, in the only race held at Marin’s single track trails. The race is held at Tamarancho Boy Scout Camp, located in Fairfax, CA.

PCRS #2 Tonight

The second race in the Prairie City Race Series is tonight. With the rain in the area, the organizers have issues the following advice:
I would HIGHLY recommend a rear fender and a front wheel splash guard (on your down tube) for the races tonight! Given the rain, the course will use a lot of the fire roads to avoid the bad mud......and of course today's race will be DOUBLE POINTS!

RACE REPORT: 2007 Boggs II

Results for the 2007 edition of Boggs, Boggs II, have been posted. The organizers posted the following wrapup on their website:
"From start to finish I felt pretty good about the day. We planned for 200 riders, and we got pretty darn close. 30 showed up for same-day registration in addition to the 159 pre-registered for a total of 189 participants. Cumulatively you guys churned out nearly a million of feet of climbing and several thousand miles in distance. If we were passing a baton that amount of effort would have taken it half way around the planet.

A huge thank you to several people. First, I have to thank the volunteers for their extremely hard work. You guys are the reason why people enjoyed themselves on Saturday. You cooked, cheered, handed out water, wrote down times, laid out the course, and after all was said and done we worked together to pick up every single gu wrapper, water bottle, lost bike part, and plastic particle you could find.
Through registrations and donations we raised over $2,500 for the Sonoma County Bicycle Coalition and the Sonoma County Trails Council. YOU GUYS ROCK."
Here's a quick GPS plot of the course:
Results are posted here. Hundreds of photos are posted here.

ROADTRIP: Mt Buller Kona Bike Park

As many of you know, I spend a lot of time out of the US these days. While this sucks from a racing point of view, it does allow me to occasionally do a bit of "mountainbike vacationing." A few weeks ago, I got a chance to sample Mount Buller Bike Park in Southeastern Australia (near Melbourne). Here's my report:

After arriving pretty late on Friday night, I awoke early to catch some breakfast and get up the hill for some biking. They've paired up with Kona to become one of their 17 groove approved bike park. While the prices were a bit steep (I dropped about AUD$200 for a days rental, which is about USD$150), I decided to hire one of their downhill bikes -- the Kona Stinky. It was this year's Stinky model in pretty good shape.

Mt Buller has a number of downhill runs, but most of them are pretty advanced. I picked the ABOM run, which was rated intermediate, instead of the International run, which at expert had several jumps and 2 meter drops. This was a wise choice, ABOM was extremely rocky, lots of square hits and pretty technical. Unfortunately, half way down I realized that the Aussies reverse their brake levers from Americans (left is back, right is front). Not before going over the handlebars once. But none the worse for wear, I made it down to the village -- about 1.7km.

After I completed my first run, I decided to hook up with a guide that was leading around another group of riders up from Geelong (near Melbourne). This was cool -- they were worse than I was -- and the guide knew a lot of less downhilly type rides around the mountain and village. This was great since I got to see a lot more of the mountain and get away from the developments. Unfortunately, you still needed to use the chair lift to get back up the mountain (the stinky is a really heavy bike). I believe that I may have used up one of my nine lives here -- I fell off once and felt like I was about to the six other times. This shot is over my shoulder as I went up the lift.

I got in about 7 or 8 runs before calling it a day. All in all, well worth the time and effort. For those of you thinking about making the trip, Mt Buller is about 4 hours drive from Melbourne.

Sea Otter Parties

The Sea Otter Classic is more than just a race that opens the MTB season, it is a social gathering. And befitting that gathering, here are some of the parties scheduled for the Sea Otter week:
  • Commencal/Marzoochi have invited you to happy hour at Sea Otter next week on April 14, 2007 at 3 p.m. in Booth #513 & 514.

Team bikes from Litespeed and Ellsworth will be on display. It will be a much more relaxed setting than the race venue, so drop by and say hello.
  • The LUNA Pro Team and Orbea invite you to a party. Where? The LUNA Pro Team trailer, 2007 Sea Otter. When? 4:00pm, Friday April 13th. Why? Because we brought beer and food
  • Not exactly a party, but more an demo. Magura's Flow Show (jumping) will be held throughout the event.
  • CrankBrothers and IMBA California invite you to a special Cali4ornia Happy Hour (April 14, 5:50-7:30 pm) at the Sea Otter Classic.

Our online RSVP automatically enters you for door prizes (even if you can't attend the event).
If you know of any other social events, please add a comment to this post.


The results are in for the first Prairie City Race Series (PCRS) Spring XC event. They are just preliminary results right now -- final results with names will be coming later. It looks like there was a giangantic turnout -- they are quoting 435 racers this week. The course looked to be about 2.5 miles with 250' elevation per lap.
A mountain of photos have also been posted. It looks like they have moved to red for this year's T-shirts :>

CHDH Speed Trap

From a posting over on the MTBR:
Just added to the Corral Hollow DH race series. ..... The CHDH Speed Trap ..... We will be clocking G-Out speed for every rider and awarding the rider with the fastest speed down the infamous G-Out with $300 for each race!!!
This is a cool idea. And probably a dangerous one.

Thule Awarding Expert Winners At Sea Otter

From a press release over at the Sea Otter Classic website:
Winners of the Sea Otter Classic expert men’s 25-29 and expert women’s 19-39 cross country events will be heading home with more than a Sea Otter Classic race medal this year, as Thule car racks will be awarding each of them with a one-year sponsorship from the company. The sponsorship package includes a new Thule car rack system, racing kit, and the company will cover the athlete’s competition entry fees in 2007.
In addition to the sponsorship, each racer will be profiled on, and their race results will be followed through out the year on the site. Thule will award the winners of the year long sponsorship contracts at the awards ceremony for their respective event.

ROADTRIP: CrankWorx Colorado

So this is a bit of a roadtrip and lack British Columbia's Canadian-ness, but should be a really good time . . .
Whistler Resort will unleash their legendary formula for throwing the world’s best freeride mountain bike festival south of the Canadian border when they partner with Winter Park Resort to produce Crankworx Colorado in Winter Park, Colorado July 5-7, 2007.

The event line-up will include a Cross-Country race, a downhill event modeled after the notorious Air Downhill, a Super D, Big Air and a Slopestyle with the course designed by John Cowan. Cowan is one of the most recognizable riders in dirt jumping and builder of the Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Bike Park’s Kona Jump Jam, and the world-renowned Hell Track I in San Diego, CA and Hell Track II in Kamloops, BC.

Known for its close proximity to Denver, Winter Park Resort’s ease of access still manages to remain a world away from the every day hustle and bustle. Home to over 50 miles of lift-accessible mountain bike trails, Colorado’s longest Alpine Slide, and an abundance of music and food festivals, Winter Park Resort offers the perfect summer escape.

For more information about Crankworx Colorado please visit; information will be posted AFTER April 15, 2007.
This sounds like it could be kick-ass. Thanks to Decline Magazine for the heads up.

The Coolest 24 Update

Just a little update from The Coolest 24 website on this year's course:
"I need to set something strait about the new bike course. There are rumors going around that its to hard, and its not. Do to some trail conditions of the Olmstead loop the race course has had a 2 1/2 mile single track and fire road climb added to it. The state park has graded the Olmstead loop and made it much faster than it has been in 20 years. This means fastest lap times would be in the 38-41 which is to fast for a 24 hr event. This will help spread the field out and make it make it safer and more enjoyable for everyone. If you go and race at OP 24hr race in AZ they have a 15 mile lap that is being finished no faster than 55 mins with little climbing. So to let all off you know the new Olmstead loop will have around 1500ft of climbing in 11 1/2 miles to 12 miles. You are not going all the way to the bottom of the Dam and back out, not even half way.

So don't stress! It's going to be another great, fast course this year!
The Coolest 24 is May 5 - 6, 2007 in Cool, CA. Find more details in the archives.

RACE REPORT: 2007 Pre Otter

Team Bigfoot hosted the annual Pre Otter this weekend and results have been posted over at MTBR. Although it looks like there were some of the normal early season course problems, it looks like it was some good racing:
"The Pro race was the best show of the day, with Carl Hesslein and John "Fuzzy" Mylne going off the front early and staying neck and neck for the rest of the race. Going into the final climb Hesslein used his gearier versus Fuzzy's single-speeder to pulled alongside Fuzzy. Hesslein clicked through the gears to power by a spun-out Fuzzy on the next straight, pulling a bike-length by the final corner where the Fuzzster did a banzai inside move that put him even with Hesslein for the sprint to the finish. It was too close to call and we had to go to the was Carl Hesslein by about six inches!"
Haven't seen any pictures, but I will update this post when they surface.
