Motherlode Epic Race

June 15


Founded in 2017, the Mother Lode Epic is the brainchild of Santa Cruz / Fox / Shimano Pro mountain biker Clint Claassen and his wife Jennifer. Clint trains regularly on these trails and wanted to create an event to showcase the area with a point-to-point race on trails that have never had a mountain bike race before.

The Mother Lode Epic is a unique single day stage format endurance race featuring four timed stages over 39 miles (32 miles of racing) and a boat transfer across Folsom Lake between the last two stages. The course follows California’s gold discovery route from the Magnolia Ranch Trailhead (near Coloma) to Historic Folsom.
