The LaGrange Classic Mountain Bike Race returns on June 8, 2019 to the scenic Weaverville Basin Trail System surrounding Weaverville, California. This year’s event will have three courses to choose from: Short, Sport (formerly Long) and Elite. Racers will travel on 90%+ singletrack through oak woodlands and conifer forests, going back in time atop historic ditch lines leftover from California's Gold Rush days at the foot of the Trinity Alps.
For the 2019 event, the Serenity and Howe-Hatfield Trails are included, adding even more singletrack to the race than last year. Experience what our course planner says is "real singletrack." (if you thought Upper Howe Ditch last year was an adventure, wait until you ride Howe-Hatfield Trail). Both the Sport and Elite courses include the race's namesake LaGrange Ditch Trail.
Race day headquarters will be at Lowden Park in downtown Weaverville. Food and beverage vendors will have booths all afternoon for your enjoyment after the race. Tent and RV camping will be available at the park, along with free hot showers (make sure you register early to secure your space). For family and friends, the park hosts a pump track, community swimming pool, and a playground.
Organized by Trinity Trail Alliance, the LaGrange Classic Mountain Bike Race is a fundraiser for Weaverville's new Trinity Bike Park (in Lowden Park adjacent to the race headquarters). After the race award ceremony, a kids time trial will be held on the new pump track. Relax after the race with a cold beer, chow down on some delicious grub, and cheer on the kids.
