The LaGrange Classic Mountain Bike Race runs in the scenic Weaverville Basin Trail System surrounding Weaverville, California. This year’s event will have four courses to choose from: Novice, Intermediate, Sport, 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.

The Serenity and Howe-Hatfield Trails are included on all courses save the Novice. Experience what our course planner says is "real singletrack." 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. 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 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 pump track. Relax after the race with a cold beer, chow down on some delicious grub, and cheer on the kids.
