2017 State Parks Rain Policy: If a ½ inch of rain is forecast 24 hours prior to the event or the day of the event, the State Parks System may cancel the event. Should we have to cancel an event in order to comply with this policy, we will issue a race credit to all registered athletes good for entry into any other TBF Mountain Bike event in 2017. We have proposed an alternate “rain course” (a combination of jeep trails and paved roads) that may be used in the event of rain to prevent trail degradation.

The MTB Classic race course is on multi-use trails within the Granite Bay State Park on Folsom Lake. The course features a fun, challenging combination of twisting single-track, wide double track, rolling cross-country with lots of turns that flow through the oak and pine forests. The course is perfect for first-timers and exciting fun for all levels. Please be respectful of other trail users including hikers and equestrian riders in this state park. All events are rain or shine, the course is great to ride in all weather. Course Map

The MTB Classic has a 1-lap Junior division, a Novice and Clydesdale division with 2-laps, a Sport and Single Speed 3-lap division, and an Expert/SS Expert and Pro divisions all doing four laps. Each lap is 6 miles of challenging, scenic, fast single track trails, up and down the foothills surrounding Folsom Lake. The MTB Kickstart is a great way to start the racing season and get back on your mountain bike. The fun course has a mixture of downhills and climbs combined with beautiful single track through the woods and along the lakeshore at Folsom Lake State Park.
