“Nevada City Dirt Classic (XC)” event name is resurrected!

This event name was last used in 2000, by owners of Extreme Outfitters Bicycles, Charlie and Kim Cuisinot. We hope to see returning and new cyclists at our summer race series in Nevada County. This is a new fundraiser series, benefitting Youth Bicyclists of Nevada County Foundation Programs for school bike club youths. “Thank You” to the Tahoe N.F. for permitting us this recreational event and at the same time helping us to support our mission.
