Lagrange Classic / NorCal Series Final / CA State Champs

Up north in Weaverville tomorrow, the Lagrange Classic begins three days of racing that symbolically closes the NorCal MTB season. Oh, and it's also the NorCal Series Finals. And the California State Championship. Here is the event schedule:
  • Super D (Friday Afternoon): It uses some of the upper 2/3 of the Downhill course, then veers onto a 3-mile section of the famed flume trails of our cross-country course for a total of 6+ miles. Take a look at the course map here.

  • Cross Country (Saturday Morning): Sport/Expert/Pro Course has added one more new section of singletrack for a total of 22.5 miles. There is also a new beginners course: "In past years it ended with 3 miles of fireroad, but no more! Our NEW 13.8 mile beginner course is now almost all singletrack!"

  • Short-track Cross Country (Sunday Morning): It’s a fun ¾-mile loop right behind the high school for easy spectating. There’s some fun single-track, some wide fire-road for passing and an oh-so-steep drop-in to keep things interesting.

  • Downhill (Sunday Noon): The start is way up WeaverBolly road at 5600' and the finish is next to East Weaver Campground at 2800'. It's along one, it takes a pro about 7.5 minutes to do the 3.2 miles. There are some super-steep chutes up top, some cool jumps and drops, high-speed sweepers, a creek jump and some twisty singletrack near the end. Check out the course map here.
You can still enter online at until midnight October 18th (tonight).

Weaverville is located just west of Redding:

The races will be held rain or shine, but it looks like the rain is going to hold off this weekend. If you have never gotten up Weaverville for one of the Team Bigfoot races, you really owe it to yourself.
