Shastarama Added To 2009 Giant Bicycles NorCal Series

shasta.jpgI know that many of you will be heading north this weekend to compete in the 12 Hours of Weaverville or Gravity Day races near Redding, so I thought I would finally get off my ass and post the newest race in the series -- the Shastarama DH and XC:
The Giant Bicycles Northern California Mountain Bike Championship Series continues to gain in popularity. The addition of a cross-country and a downhill to be held at Mt. Shasta Ski Park, July 18 and 19, increases the series to nine cross-country events, six downhill events, five Super-D races, and two short-track races. For information on the Mt. Shasta events visit or call (530)926-2539.

“We had all the events in this year’s series all set back in February,” says Vic Armijo of Team Bigfoot, coordinator of the series, “but then the folks at Mt. Shasta decided to hold an event and approached us about being in the series,” he added. “When they told me that the downhill would have chair-lift service and that the timing would be done by their ski racing crew, well, it just made perfect sense!”

This season long points series will culminate at the finals at the LaGrange Fall Classic in Weaverville. Champions in each category will be awarded with a 1st place medal, special 1ST Place Socks from Sock Guy, and will be eligible to purchase a championship jersey. Medals will also be presented for second and third place in the series.
Online registration is available at and the downhill course map is available.
