    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

    You're absolutely right, but what's more fun is going up on non race weekends and the race weekend. It's worth it alone just to drink beer in the streets and dance to the saddle tramps.

    Sounds like everyone has a fair shot at registration, but some people have a fairer shot than we do.

    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..
