About This Activity

This world-class event returns again to its race venue at the historic Keyesville Mining Area for its twenty-forth year in a row! Because of this long history, the race was granted Classic status in 1995 by the National Off-Road Bicycle Association becoming only one of 19 events nationwide to be awarded this prestigious title. The Southern Sierra Fat Tire Association is promoting and directing this year s race, with all proceeds being donated to local trail projects.

The events this year include the Keyesville Classic XC loop (8.3 miles), Short Track, the Snakepit Downhill (best of 2 runs), the All-Mountain Races and an entertaining kids race. The All-Mountain Stage Race will once again be the spotlight of this year s event, challenging riders to compete in XC, DH and Short Track on exactly the same bike.

New for 2012! Lower prices and expanded age groups for women!

Prizes awarded three deep in each class for age groups 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, and 50+ and open classes (Single Speed and Vintage races)

(We reserve the right to condense age categories for any race with a field smaller than three deep)

The Pro racers will be competing for a 100% Payback cash purse.

All competitors are entered in the ever-popular Keyesville prize raffle. Food and beverage services will be available adjacent to the Manufacturers Expo Area.

Race Packet pickup will be at the race site on the days of the races and on March 30th from 3pm-6pm. The Kern River Brewing Company has invited participants to come in on Friday evening to socialize and enjoy good food and drinks.

The Southern Sierra Fat Tire Association, an incorporated nonprofit mountain bike club, is a volunteer organization consisting groups of dedicated cyclists in the Kern County area. These groups work in close cooperation with the Bureau of Land Management, the residents and merchants of the Kern River Valley region and the Lake Isabella Chamber of Commerce to make the Keyesville Classic a reality.
