The Big Sandy Returns for 2012

The Big Sandy, an epic Central Cali point to point race, is back for 2012:

The race starts at the base of the San Joaquin River Gorge, five miles northwest of Auberry, CA and follows 15 miles of mostly singletrack along the contours of the river valley, finishing at Finegold Bay on Millerton Lake. Long course riders go 23 miles, starting with a climb to the top of the ridge followed by one of the best singletrack downhills in the area before joining the remainder of the course. Soar past wildflowers and the sparkling river to finish under shady trees for something to eat and drink.

Full details on their site at

Tip of the hat to Richard for the heads up.
