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 lava-capped climbs, technical switchbacks, creek crossings, and weaving single-track through canyons and cliffs of Big Chico Creek. The climbs 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 famous. The course is approximately 14 miles with 2000′ of climbing.
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 (SD) is approximately 5 miles and is very technical, and only intended for advanced riders. 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.

Chico is all about community, so the event is family friendly with a beginner (Novice) race and a Kid’s race.
The Novice race is approximately 5.7 miles with some technical aspects as it winds through Middle and Lower Trails of Upper Bidwell Park.
The Kid’s race will be on a flat dirt course that is approximately 1.0 mile in length. The kid’s race is free and will have 3 age categories; 4 and under (100 yd/300′ dash), 5-8 (1 lap) and 9-11 (2 laps).

Web registration is available. Opens on 2014-04-01. Closes on 2014-08-07.
