DV Classic Volunteer and Industry Rep Trifecta

The Volunteer and Industry Rep Trifecta challenges volunteers and industry sponsor staff to a three stage competition of speed and skill. This is a fun way to show our appreciation for all of the volunteers and industry staff who help make the Downieville Classic possible. The Trifecta will be held Thursday, August 3 from 5pm to 8pm during the BBQ celebration at Yuba Expeditions and before Joy and Madness rocks the riverside. The competition is open for the first 40 contestants who register. Email mark@sierratrails.org to register before Friday, July 29. Some registration may be taken onsite on Thursday, August 3rd but only if the Trifecta is not full.

Stage 1 – Pixie Crit

The Pixie Crit is an obstacle course featuring wooden roller coasters, teeter-totters, ramps, cone chicanes, and a staircase sprint. Use your mad skillz as you fight to keep the rubber side down on a 16-inched wheeled bicycle.

 

Stage 2 – Dirtbag Sprint

The Dirtbag Sprint is a sack race using the heavy duty, dirt transport bags Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship uses in trail construction. Racers will navigate a coned obstacle course standing inside the knee high dirtbag.

Winner’s Prizes
