Quiet camping under the stars on the V6 ranch! We'll be staying up late and waking up early again this year toget more people registered. We'll have the college kids separated from families and early birds as usual. All non-collegiate racers get a BBQ ticket included with their race!
Parkfield has just the right brew for you. All courses come with our own flavor: narrow single track, big lungbusting fire road climbs and long, screaming fast descents.
Two courses all the way down means the battle isn’t over until the very end. Big berms and jumps make this onesweet course. One qualifying run. The 16 fastest qualifiers in each category will go head to head in singleelimination rounds. Fastest qualifier in each race gets lane choice.
Brand new to the Parkfield Classic, we will be having an unofficial observed trials competition and demonstrationthis year. Come show off your precision riding skills on this awesome course. Several sections will be offered,each with a beginner and advanced line. Judging will be done by your fellow riders. Rules on bike setup will berelaxed, so mods and stocks will compete together.
Fast paced and action packed XC racing that is as fun to watch as it is to race. Laps will be around the samecourse as last year with long fast sections as well as some more challenging technical areas. USAC racers willrace with corresponding collegiate category due to time constraints.
When we brew downhill, we use nothing but heaps of fresh single-track. We enrich the flavor with flowing turns,high speed G-outs, and exciting drops. Single Run format. Bypass options are given for most obstacles. Ridersare encouraged to wear protective gear as necessary.
This year's BBQ will take place both Saturday and Sunday by the slalom course so you can sit down and cheer for your racers. $5 for a delicious cheeseburger, chips, and a tasty beverage. Non-Collegiate racers get a freemeal with each day they race.
The coveted Parkfield Pint Glasses are awarded 3 deep for all categories
