    Downieville Classic #15 - update

    Ah yes, itís that time of year again. The race to get into the race. On-line registration for the Downieville Classic All-Mountain and Cross Country categories will be opening this Friday, February 19th at 8:00pm. We will post specific url links for each event that will take you to Active.com, so be sure you are entering the correct event. It is helpful to already have an account set-up with Active.com before attempting to register. This is important, because like I said, navigating through the registration process quickly and accurately can mean the difference of winning or losing-out on an entry into the race.

    A little fair warning to all our "friends" that don't get in, both mine and Wayno's phones will be turned off. Good luck to everyone, and remember, even if you don't get into the All-Mountain event, the Cross Country race is an epic adventure not to be missed. Plus without the worry of racing the Downieville Downhill, you get to party with The Saddle Tramps on Saturday night.

    On another related note: It's good to have the folks from Santa Cruz Bicycles back as Title Sponsor. Already the positive affects of this partnership are being felt throughout our surrounding trail system. In addition to their sponsorship of the Downieville Classic, Santa Cruz Bicycles is stepping up it's support of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) by providing cash contributions to subsidize volunteer trail work programs and to purchase tools and equipment. All funds provided by Santa Cruz Bicycles will be utilized as an in-kind match, allowing SBTS grant writers to leverage, sometimes as much as 1500%, additional trail maintenance and construction funds. A dynamic partnership that ultimately results in a trail system that is sustainable and accessible to mountain bikers for generations.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

    At this point the race entry should just go to an auction format. Use the proceeds to support the Buttes Stewardship

    After doing this race 4 time consecutively I haven't even bothered the last 3 years. The race for a spot is not worth it. Better to go up on a non-race weekend and enjoy a cabin in town without all the hubub

    looks like the AM has no password requirement initially but then when you get to page 3 it says you need one. XC just has this red letter password required thingy

    Well, at this point...Yuba had just better reset the registration date a few days or a week from now to reset the "race" for registration to be fair for everyone, because this obviously sucks.

    Hopefully it is just something that Active.com messed up.

    I experienced something like this once before when I was competing in Freeskiing events. Registration got jacked up like this, and to make it fair for everyone, they apologized and moved the registration back a week to give everyone a fair chance of getting in again.

    f@ckin A that was stressful. IN for pro men, but I have to agree with Felton Flyer. This is not the time or place for rants, but there will be a lot of unhappy people thanks to this stunt, though probably no less or more than without a "passcode".

    Active.com member. Thought it would speed registration....but then asking for PASSWORD. Typed in my Active.com password. My old password, my wife's password,
    my neighbors password. I asked my kids their password, but......arrgggg! NOTHING! I guess I get Sunday off to watch instead of race.
    Every day above ground is a great day!

    We should just rename this thread to the "Bash the hell out of Dville, for the gayest stunt ever" .. So I wonder who the lucky person was that knew the passcode and let it out to every one??

    anyways.. In for All mountain Junior Expert..

    They probably wanted to do it invitation only, but couldn't because of some legality. This was their workaround.

    Yeah, I don't see this holding water. They're going to have to re-do the registration thing. All you that got in, don't get too comfortable yet.

    Before registration opened on active.com it said on the XC page that it opened at 9, not 8. Maybe the problems will be cleared up at 9.

    "good luck to everyone"

    I sure hope this isn't the way this classic race turns out...you better sign up for 12 mile in Ashland before they come up with some criptic passcode for next year.





    Ah yes, it’s that time of year again. The race to get into the race. On-line registration for the Downieville Classic All-Mountain and Cross Country categories will be opening this Friday, February 19th at 8:00pm. We will post specific url links for each event that will take you to Active.com, so be sure you are entering the correct event. It is helpful to already have an account set-up with Active.com before attempting to register. This is important, because like I said, navigating through the registration process quickly and accurately can mean the difference of winning or losing-out on an entry into the race.

    A little fair warning to all our "friends" that don't get in, both mine and Wayno's phones will be turned off. Good luck to everyone, and remember, even if you don't get into the All-Mountain event, the Cross Country race is an epic adventure not to be missed. Plus without the worry of racing the Downieville Downhill, you get to party with The Saddle Tramps on Saturday night.

    On another related note: It's good to have the folks from Santa Cruz Bicycles back as Title Sponsor. Already the positive affects of this partnership are being felt throughout our surrounding trail system. In addition to their sponsorship of the Downieville Classic, Santa Cruz Bicycles is stepping up it's support of the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS) by providing cash contributions to subsidize volunteer trail work programs and to purchase tools and equipment. All funds provided by Santa Cruz Bicycles will be utilized as an in-kind match, allowing SBTS grant writers to leverage, sometimes as much as 1500%, additional trail maintenance and construction funds. A dynamic partnership that ultimately results in a trail system that is sustainable and accessible to mountain bikers for generations.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!

    I vote for jumping in the race about 1/2 mile up the hill.

    Look out for plate #666! No prisoners!!! Death to Yuba Expeditions!

    This debacle makes me want to pull out some water bars and lock my rear wheel down the whole trail!

    Trail stewardship my ass!

    I got in thanks to Ames spilling the beans. But that was so absurd that I want to know if everybody's outrage will actually result in loss attendance. If you are seriously pissed at them, then why keep trying to register. Put your pocketbook where your mouth is and don't support the event.

    another response from Yuba:

    "Yes we have had problems with active and are trying to get it fixed. There is no passcode! Please keep trying.

    Love how the event now has 52 reviews and the rating is sinking faster than a rock.

    This is an active.com error!

    Just spoke with a reliable source, they are working with active.com right now to fix the problem. Update will come when there is news to report.

    CHILL!! They are working on the problem.

    Well, the XC initial page still SAYS password required but there was no prompt. Signed up for 35-44 XC Beginner.

    i like how everyone is now posting the random passwords that they were guessing for XC, when in reality anything would have worked because they just happened to remove the password validation at that moment. but yeah, points to all for creativity.

    This race is too short for you anyway....

    Creampuff is the same date....get your ass up to Oregon.

    I experienced something like this once before when I was competing in Freeskiing events. Registration got jacked up like this, and to make it fair for everyone, they apologized and moved the registration back a week to give everyone a fair chance of getting in again.

    I figured it was something like that. But I did get into the XC with "santacruz"

    Might regret registering

    I got in XC with a password someone passed on to me but it seems anything is working now. But by the time the password requirement was lifted, it was too late for my husband to get into All Mtn. I hope this is an honest mistake and not an unannounced exclusivity. I'll wait to get the full story before judging.

    Thanks Yuba for making things right. This is the one race that I and many others look forward to every year - you could even say it plays a factor in the types of bikes many of us buy. Looking forward to round two

    I CANCELLED MY OUTING WITH THE WIFE AND RESIGNED BOTH OF US TO TRYING TO GET IN TO THIS RACE. NOT TO MENTION THE FRIENDS OF MINE TRYING TO DO THE SAME.

    WE HAVE BEEN SET UP SINCE 6PM MAKING SURE OUR ACCOUNTS WERE READY TO GO, CREDIT CARDS IN HAND AND ETC.

    UNLESS YUBA MAKES THIS RIGHT, REFUNDS MY $$ FOR THE XC ENTRY (ONLY ACCESSIBLE VIA A SECRET CODE) AND CONVERTS MY ENTRY TO AN ALL MOUNTAIN ENTRY - I WILL CONTINUE MY ALL CAPS RANT!!!!!!'

    FVCK!!!!!

    Sorry but I can't just bail on the Downieville Classic because of their or Active.com's ineptitude. If the AM was rigged with a password intentionally, then I'd probably be pissed enough to bail on the XC but the AM just means nothing to me really.

    I still hope they re-do the AM registration just to be fair to everyone who thought they had a chance. If not then this race has probably seen the height of its existence.
