Downhill Series

Downhill Mountain Bike enthusiasts are offered the perfect conditions for downhill racing on Northstar California’s terrain and can compete against one another all summer long during the Downhill Mountain Bike Race Series featuring 20 divisions for men, women and juniors to compete in. The top three racers in each division will receive awards at the conclusion of each race as well as the conclusion of the entire series, based on cumulative points. An after party and awards ceremony will be hosted on the Lodge at Big Springs Deck with food and drink specials for competitors to enjoy. Awards are scheduled to begin at approximately a half hour after the final competitor finishes.

Enduro Race

This rapidly growing discipline combines the physical endurance of cross-country mountain bike riding with the technical difficulty and excitement of downhill mountain bike racing. The 2018 Enduro Race will consist of a minimum of two timed Special Stages linked together by un-timed Transfer Stages. The timed Special Stages will be a variation of downhill courses. The un-timed Transfer Stages could require uphill pedaling and the use of our chair lifts to get to each Special Stage. There will be no assigned start times at the Special Stages. Racers will start the Special Stages every 40 seconds in no particular order. The competitor in each category with the fastest combined time from the Special Stages will win the event. The top three racers in each division will receive awards at the conclusion of each race.
