DOWNIEVILLE CLASSIC POINT-TO-POINT CROSS COUNTRY RACE, and ALL-MOUNTAIN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS STAGE 1: SIERRA CITY TO DOWNIEVILLE Saturday August 2nd, 2014. Sierra City to Downieville. 4,413' ascent / 5,692' descent. The Downieville Classic cross country race is one of the last remaining point-to-point bicycle races in the United States. The 29 mile course follows a rugged "Gold Rush" era route that departs the mountain town of Sierra City (elevation 4,100'), climbs to the crest of the Sierra Nevada (elevation 7,100'), and then plunges 5,200 vertical feet into downtown Downieville. A golden pathway, selected as a tribute to the mountains, the rivers, the fresh mountain air, and to the hard men that carved these trails through the river canyons in search of gold and prosperity.

"Stick to the Track"
Some riders seem to be all too familiar with racing events like Megavalanche, and other big mountain enduros, where the fastest man or woman down the mountain, regardless of the route, is crowned champion. This type of racing became a problem in the 2010 Downieville Classic, as we had several riders using what we like to refer to as "Hillbilly Lines". We are officially ending this method of racing, by placing course marshals in known “cutter” areas. Riders that do not stick to the track will be disqualified.

REGISTRATION FEES INCLUDE:
100% of the race registration proceeds benefit the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (www.sierratrails.org), trail maintenance program.
