Cross Country MTB races on the prison course

That is a wrap for 2016... see you in 2017!

The Race Behind Bars races are the only time
you can ride this restricted course on the State Prison property. This area is off limits at any other time, please do not try to pre-ride this course except on race day... unless you want to have a "chat" with the Prison Guards.

The course is awesome and includes lots of sweet single track, flume trail, some fire road, three bridge crossings and all in our native oak woodlands. Racing this event is a rare opportunity to ride on the 5.9 mile course on the Folsom Prison property. Want to see what the course is like? Watch a VIDEO of the race course HERE.
