Old Growth Classic

We had a great time at the inaugural Old Growth Classic! This was the first bike race to ever take place in the iconic Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The riders enjoyed a weekend of racing, food, music, and of course…cocktails! Shoutout to Mountain Bikers of Santa Cruz and Ibis for making it happen. Check out the awesome video and see you next year!
