Closing in on twenty years, the 2009 Parkfield Classic will be one to remember. Great courses, great people, and fun times await those who make the journey to the “earthquake capital of the world” for this year’s addition. In addition to commissioning an alliance of priests, monks, shamans, and scientologists to perform a no-rain dance on Friday afternoon, the Wheelmen have been hard at work making sure the courses are groomed, the prized pint glasses ready, and the barbecues fired up. As they say in Parkfield, “Be there when it happens!”.

Who/What/When/Where: The Parkfield Classic is presented by the Cal Poly SLO Wheelmen and includes a weekend of XC, DS, ST, and DH racing, along with camping and all around good time.

Cross Country

Cost: USAC categories: $40, Juniors: $30, Collegiate: $15
Course Description: One of the last few races that won’t send you out for loop after loop of the same course. All courses come with our own flavor: flowy single track, big lung busting fire road climbs and long, screaming fast descents. ALL NORBA/USAC XC Racers get a BBQ ticket included with their race. Distances: Cat 3: 9 miles, Cat 2: 15 miles, Pro/Cat 1: 24 miles.

Dual Slalom

Cost: USAC categories: $35, Juniors: $30, Collegiate: $15
License: USA Cycling
Course Description: A new course this year with separate tracks for each racer makes for intense competition all the way down the hill. Built up rollers and additional berms make this year’s course the best one yet. One qualifying run. The 16 fastest qualifiers in each category will go head to head in single elimination rounds. Fastest qualifier in each race gets lane choice.


Cost: USAC categories: $35, Juniors: $30, Collegiate: $15
License: USA Cycling
Course Description: 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. For those preferring something stouter, we’ve got some harder and bolder lines, but always allow the option for smoother ones for the first timers. Single Run format. Bypass options are given for most obstacles. Pro/Cat 1 course different than Cat 2/3 course. Riders are encouraged to wear protective gear as necessary. All riders must ride within safe limits!

Short Track

Cost: USAC categories: $35, Juniors: $30, Collegiate: $15
License: USA Cycling
Course Description: Fast paced and action packed XC racing that is as fun to watch as it is to race. Laps will be around a modified course from last year. Bring your lungs and your passing gears — we’re putting in more room for longer, harder drag races. NORBA/USAC racers will race with corresponding collegiate category due to time constraints.
