San Joaquin River Gorge
The Big Sandy is back for the 11th year of celebrating the Big Sandy Bridge!
We have a newly resurfaced bridge and have done lots of trail work to fix some of the trouble areas and will continue to do more leading up to the race.
We are running the same courses as the last few years, with the simplified categories.
8:30 race start – Finegold Bay
This race starts at the finish line adding 15 miles of winding singletrack out to the Gorge, where we will have nuetral support (water and ride food for racers).
38 Mile Racers have a 2-hour cut off on the first 15 mile section to avoid cross-traffic.
10:40 race start San Joaquin River Gorge
The 23 mile route starts with a climb to the top of the ridge followed by one of the best singletrack downhills in the area before it joins the 15 miles of sweet singletrack along the contours of the river valley, finishing at Finegold Bay on Millerton Lake, joining the remainder of the course. Soar past wildflowers and the sparkling river to finish under shady trees and enjoy some food and drink.
