Great Auburn Epic Race
April 28, 2019 • Auburn
The inaugural Great Auburn Epic takes place in Auburn, the Endurance Capital of the World. This mountain bike race features four timed cross country stages on the spectacular trails at Auburn State Recreation Area (Auburn SRA).
The race starts with a 4.5 mile transfer along Foresthill Road including a crossing of the Foresthill Bridge – the highest bridge in California at 730 feet. Stage 1 is on smooth single track on the Foresthill Divide Loop from Grizzly Bear House to Drivers Flat. Stage 2 features four more miles on the Foresthill Divide Trail and then 3.5 miles of amazing flowy, twisty turns and switchbacks of the Connector Trail, where racers are treated to amazing canyon views above Lake Clementine. Stage 3 takes place on Culvert Trail – a flow trail with banks, berms, jumps and a tunnel under Foresthill Road. The fourth and final stage is the Confluence Trail from Mammoth Bar OHV along the Middle Fork of the American River to the confluence where the middle fork meets the north fork.
Post-race party with BBQ, craft beer, awards and shenanigans round out a great day on the bike. Professional timing provided by California Enduro Series.
Mammoth Bar Enduro
June 15 • Auburn
The Mammoth Bar Enduro offers a fun and challenging course that includes trails in the Auburn State Recreation Area and Mammoth Bar OHV.
In Auburn SRA, racers will take on two stages: one on Confluence Trail which runs along the Middle Fork American River and features a gradual descent featuring rock gardens and narrow sections; the other on flowy Culvert Trail which features banks, berms, jumps, drop offs and a tunnel under Foresthill Road. The other two stages of the day will take place at Mammoth Bar OHV: Eastside Trail which has been brushed and graded for a fast black diamond technical thrill run; and Stonewall/Rocky … a stage that starts out steep on Stonewall then leads into the double black diamond Rocky Trail with a crowd favorite finish at the venue.
A post-race party with a full BBQ lunch, local craft beer, and awards will round out this big day of racing bikes. Professional timing provided by the California Enduro Series.
