The 2013 Bidwell Bump will be presented by North Rim Adventure Sports and Chico Masters Cycling Team on Saturday, August 24th 2013. The 2012 promoters and sponsors put on a great race and we plan to keep it true to Bidwell Bump style!

For many years the Bidwell Bump has challenged the technical ability of anyone who has raced it.
For the sport, expert and pro categories the Cross-Country (XC) race course will test everyone with North Rim’s lava-capped climb, B-Trail’s switchbacks, the Big Chico Creek crossing, 10 Mile House trail (aka; Green Gate climb) and weaving single-track through canyons and cliffs of Bloody Pin and South Rim. The courses are not for the faint-of-heart, but will greatly reward the racers as they descend the multiple trails that make the South side of Big Chico Creek infamous. The course is approximately 14 miles with 2000′ of climbing. The race starts at 9 am, mandatory participants meeting at 8:45 am.
The expert’s and pro’s will have the option of taking the All Mountain Challenge (AMC). This is the ultimate race the Bidwell Bump can offer; racing the XC course and the Super Downhill (SD) race. The SD course is approximately 5 miles and is very technical, and only intended for advanced riders. Participants are expected to have the correct protective equipment. Participants in the SD race are required to race the XC. The SD must be raced on the same bike as used for the XC. The SD race starts at 1:00 pm, mandatory participants meeting 12:45 pm.

Cross Country

Course Description: For the Pro/Expert/Sport category, the XC race is approximately 14 miles of technical climbing and descending, switchbacks, creek crossings and fast technical singletrack, while ascending approximately 2000’ overall on the North Rim trail, B-Trail, Bloody Pin and South Rim trail.

Super D

Course Description: The SD course is for the Pro/Expert categories only, is approximately 5 miles in length that traverses the sloping South side of Upper Bidwell Park on Gaurdians Trail. The SD is paired with the XC race for the All Mountain Challenge (AMC).
For the Beginner to Intermediate, the Novice course is a dabble in the technical terrain of Upper Bidwell Park, packed into half the miles and 1/4 the climbing of the XC. The Novice race is set inside the lower canyon of Big Chico Creek within Upper Bidwell Park on Middle and Lower Trail.
There is also a FREE Kid’s Race course for all ages!
