    ... and if we just ... Lagrange Fall Classic, Weaverville Oct. 20-22

    It’s just a week away, the Lagrange Fall Classic in Weaverville, the unofficial last gathering of the Way-NorCal mountain bike tribe. The fires that were West of the race site are virtually out, so smoke isn't a factor at all.

    Come join us for a full weekend of racing, including a Super-D, Cross-country and Downhill on the awesome trails of the Weaver Basin Trail System, some of the bestest singletrack ever! Part of the proceeds will be donated to the WBTS to be used for maintaining and building even more trails (that's Bigfoot in the bottom pic handing off last year's check to the VP of the WBTS).

    Our venue is the local high school, with paved parking, real bathrooms AND they open up the shower rooms so racers can get hot showers and not have to drive home stinky and grimey….unless they want to.

    Super D , Fri. 10/20 Sign Up: 2:30-3:30, corner of Victory Lane and Weaver Bally Rd, (at stop sign before the high school) race 4pm.
    Cross-Country, Sat.10/21 Sign-Up: 8-9:30am, race 10am
    Downhill 10/22 Sign-Up 8-10am,
    Shuttles start at 9am,Timed Runs begin at 12 noon.
    Team Bigfoot award to top 3 in each category

    SUPER D: The course uses some of the upper 2/3 of the Downhill course, then veers onto a 3-mile section of the famed flume trails of our cross-country course for a total of 6+ miles of swooping, speeding, roller-coaster ride fun!!

    CROSS COUNTRY: Much of the course is on flume trails dug by hand during the gold-rush days of the 1850's. Start/Finish line is at Trinity High School. The Beginner cross-county course is 16 miles of singletrack and fireroad with about 2000' of climbing. The Sport/Expert/Pro Course is about 23 miles and includes the famous LaGrange Ditch singletrack.. .fun stuff!

    DOWNHILL: The Downhill course is about 4 miles and has over 2400'' of altitude drop. We run shuttles from the High School. Course will be open for self-shuttled practice on Saturday after the Cross-Country. On race day we shuttle with trucks and trailers, and racers who have appropriate vehicles are encouraged to shuttle themselves to help speed up the day. On Sunday we run downhill practice shuttles at 9am. Each racer gets as many practice runs as they can squeeze in before timed runs begin at noon.

    WIN A SOULCRAFT FRAME: Soulcraft Cycles will build some lucky racer a fully custom bike of his/her choice, road, cyclocross, 29er, hardtail, singlespeed ...whatever you want! All season long racers earn raffle tickets at Team Bigfoot events. Visit www.soulcraftbikes.com to see their beautiful work. The middle photo is last year's Soulcraft winner, obviously somewhat pleased to hear his name being announced.

    SINGLESPEEDERS, WIN A REDLINE MONO-COG FRAME: All season long at all Team Bigfoot events, each singlespeeder gets one raffle ticket at each race toward winning the frame. Earn more tickets basedon your finish. After the cross-country awards on Saturday, we'll draw the winning ticket. Must be present to win.

    CAMPING: East Weaver Campground is closest. From Weaverville take Highway 3, just past the Weaverville Airport and turn left on East Weaver Rd., go 1 mile to the campground. Daily fee is $10 per site.There's another campground at Junction City, 8 miles west on Hwy299, and another at Rush Creek about 6 miles out Highway 3. Rush Creek has no water, but it's only $7. Or 7 miles weast of Weaverville off Highway 299 to Steiner Flat Road is Douglas City with 18 tent/trailer campsites, group picnic area, picnic tables, telephone, beach, paved loop road, flush and vault toilets, potable water, and fire rings. $10.00 per vehicle, per night.

    LODGING: Motel Trinity 1112 Main St., (530) 623-2129
    in downtown Weaverville. http://moteltrinity.shasta-trinity.com

    Man, memories. I used to live almost at the end of east weaver (paved section) and the area behind the highschool is where my dad taught me to drive dunebuggies. We used to just BMX around town, before anyone heard of (invented) mountain bikes. My friends cousin from redding had a Bianchi ten-speed road bike, we were in awe.

    Smile Awesome weather for race weekend!!

    It's raining in Weaverville today (Monday), which should make for tacky, dust-free conditions by the weekend. Current predictions are for 70-degree days. Awesome!

    One question

    Is the Super D a mass start?

    And for those that haven't done this race (XC). Do yourself a huge favor and come up and race it. It seriously has the most fun, beautiful trails I've been on in Northern California. Oh, and the fact that you can win a soulcraft frame doesn't hurt either.

    Not a mass start....

    Nope, too narrow, too steep, too fast. Someone might get seriously killed.

    ..and then when we drew the winner of the Soulcraft, someone would be really bummed if they didn't survive to enjoy it.

    Loki won last year's Soulcraft. He had 'em build the 29er singlespeed you see above.

    Nice bike!! For the past week or so, there have been voices inside my head telling me to build up a single speed. I just gotta get the voices inside my wife's head to agree.

    Talked to a few buddies of mine that had to gloat to me about going up for the DH race since I had to work.

    They gave big props for the shuttle trailer having foam on the lip to protect the bikes.......

    I hate to be an ass but....

    I will.

    You have Angelo Belnas and Shane Swanson down for DQed because they missed a corner and cut of some of the course. I know for a fact that Matt Dooley, and Pat Beckley also missed the exact same corner. It doesn't matter, its only a local grass roots race. But if they had affected my standings, then I would be pretty peeved.

    I know they did not cut the course on purpose, but it was due to course markings. The area that a lot of people missed was the turn off the major dirt road climb. I know you can't block a road, but when people are in the heat of a race, its hard to look up at the trees for course markings, especially when you are climbing head down up a long dirt road, not expecting to turn off.

    I believe in an area such as that it would be good to put a course marshal, especially when if a person misses the turn, they can knock off a good 5 minutes or so of time.

    Also, on the single track, I know a lot of people blew by corners only to have to back track to make the right turn. It seems like with multi use trails you could put ribbon across the wrong way, the only other users would be hikers and horses, and they could deal with that for one day, if they even happen to use the trails that particular day.

    The trails may seem well marked, until you are going at race pace, and all you are thinking about is trying not to vomit.

    I know this sounds like I am whining, but pretty much everyone I have talked to thinks the same.

    Would have been there...

    but it was the same weekend as CA XC state championships at Castaic. My chain snapped twice, finished 10th, and moved up to 5th in Beg. Men's 40-44 series. Had a great time at Whiskeytown, though.

    I have taken the downhill results and put them in a table format, added a best run column, sorted them by overall best times and added an average miles per hour column. I thought others might like to see things broken down a few ways. You can find these results posted on my sight

    www.ksquaredracing.com

    On the left nav bar is a link to DH Mountainbiking and in the Lagrange Fall classic box there is a link to the results. Enjoy.

    PS I hope I am not going outside of my jurisdiction by reposting the results. If I am please let me know and I will take them down promplty.
