Downieville Dominance!

The Whole Athlete team came to Downieville XC with a mission: to ride well and have fun. After more than a week of excellent training in Tahoe, they accomplished even more than that -- taking the top two steps of both junior podiums, first overall in the all-mountain XC sport, and four other top-five finishes.

The Downieville Classic is indeed that - a "classic" MTB race where the whole town becomes the race. A fun expo and hundreds of people having a good time. The XC race course is one of the most challenging I have ever ridden in more than 20 years of MTB riding and racing. A true MTB XC course.
