CROSS-COUNTRY : The cross-county course is a mix of singletrack and fireroad with some more new singletrack---we try to add a little more each year. Beginners will do about 14 miles, sports will do about 21, experts & pros will do 28 miles. All classes start at the same time. We put the pros in front, then the experts, sports, etc. It sorts itself out just fine.

SUPER-D : It's a lonnng one. We start at the top of Bald Mountain and send you down some of the XC course, some of the DH course and finish down in creek canyon. It's almost all downhill with one short level section and one very short climb. Each rider gets one run.
DOWNHILL: Our downhill course has been called "world cup worthy." It has high speed stuff, a little bit of slower technical stuff and all the jumps and drops that the experts love, but with safe & sane outs for the beginners and sports. Best two of three format. Course will be open for practice on Saturday after the Super-D (probably 3pm or so) On race day we'll run shuttles with two trucks & trailers, and you're welcome to run your own shuttle too.

COURSE WORK: We'll have a few trail makin' sessions prior to the event. Wanna help and get to pre-ride? Call Vic at (707) 845-3095 or e-mail [email protected].

AWARDS & RAFFLE: Top 3 in each category get hand-made wood plaques. After awards we raffle off a table-load of sponsor scwhag. Each rider gets on raffle ticket, earn more tickets based on your finish.

To NORBA or not to NORBA?: Team Bigfoot likes to bring you good racin' without emptying your wallet. So, while we use NORBA's rules (gotta wear a helmet, gotta be self-sufficient & all that) we DON"T require a NORBA license.

CAMPING: Sorry, but our land sponsors at Simpson Timber Company won't allow any overnight camping at the race site. Some folks ignored this in 2003 and camped along the dirt road between the race and Hwy 299 and got us in trouble with Simpson. Please, please don't endanger the future of this event. Camp only at one of the following legal campgrounds: Boise Creek Campground - 2 mi. W of Willow Creek, Hwy. 299, (530) 629-2118, East Fork Campground - 7 mi. W of Willow Creek, Hwy. 299, (530) 629-2118, KOA (707) 822-4243, Clam Beach County Park (707) 445-7651
Patrick's Point State Beach (707) 677-3570 Mad Rivers RV Park (707) 822-7275

FREE "LITTLE FEET" KIDS' RACE: Bring the little ones along on Saturday for the cross-country, cuz after the adult's race any kid 12 & under gets to race on a small course for free. They gotta have a helmet and mom or dad has to be there to sign a release.

On private land 20 miles from Arcata

mtb+me said:
Is the same location as last years 12 hours of humboldt.
No. It's at "Bald Mountain," a chunk of private timber land about 20 miles from the 12 Hours of Humboldt location.

We've been using this course for years, each year we add a bit more singletrack. Fun stuff. Great location. We have the whole mountain to ourselves as sort of our private playground for the weekend.
