Results from the 2018 Downieville Classic

August 06 — 2018 | Downieville California

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since we were wiping away dusty unibrows and recovering from the anarchy in the mountains that is the Classic. Home away from home is the only way to describe Downieville for many of the Santa Cruz Free Agents, Factory Racing crew, Juliana riders, and supporters who rolled into town to take part in the racing and the festivities, so even though the results are in we’re having a hard time not pretending that we're still ripping shuttle laps with the SBTS crew or hanging in the river.

We’ll have a full recap soon but in the meantime scroll down for some of the podium shots featuring Santa Cruz riders. Hit these links for full results from the Cross Country, DH, and All Mountain races!

Proceeds from The Classic go right back into maintaining and building world-class trails through the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (learn about the SBTS here >) .
