  • John Mallow

    If this ride is self supported, can I park my truck near the Brick Oven somewhere and grab food and water from it as long as I retrace my way exactly back to the Brick oven before the next lap?

  • nmes

    Yes, most people leave their vehicles at the Chamber of Commerce parking area.

  • John Ledington

    With the start at 6am will we need a light for the first hour or so?

  • Brian

    What’sthe best area to trailer camp nearby while I’m down there? I’m planning on spending 3-4 nights, looking for easy (non high clearance) access.

    anyone know if there is a list for the 74 and if that list is being updated with recent adds/ drops?

    • SWES

      there is only one sign up list and the first 74 people on it are in, all others are not. This will be updated as people drop out, later on…this is still several months away.

    Results please…just curious of the times this year. Seems like it was a fast field ! THANKS for a great day and a fantastic event.

    2012 Preliminary Results

    Congrats to Brian Smith and Allison Powers for riding fastest the 9th Annual CB Classic! Shawn Gregory gets the fastest SS time, and special congrats to Ian Kelly (18 years old!) on his first 100-miler, ridden side-by-side with his father Sean Kelly. Kent Cowherd and Britta Seppi get the honors for the Mini Classic.

    Finally, please give a special THANK YOU to all the volunteers out there, Missy, Em, Jason, Jeff, Dan Loftus and the Brick Oven Crew, and shoot half the town of Crested Butte! Our host David Ochs and the Town of Crested Butte once again showed they are indeed the center of the mountain bike universe, and this time they even had half naked pagans to show for it. Heal up Ochs and lets make the 10th even more special.

    As for 2013….ummm, ‘I’m In”

  • davidochs

    Thank you Matt! And thanks to all who came out. Sorry results took a bit, but had to get out of town and away from it all for a quick bit. At that, I’m gimp, and it’s all volunteers who make this happen is right. If I have times or places wrong, let me know. If anyone came in later than we were there, let me know, we’ll get your time down. And at that, sorry if we were not – needed to tend to wounds! -Dave

  • John Todd Mallow

    The Classic is the Greatest!!! Thank you so much to all of the folks at the timing table, and all the other volunteers that were out there making this thing happen and of course, Dave… there is a place reserved for Dave in the MTB Hall of Fame I am sure of it! If I ever become filthy rich there will be a statue of Dave in front of the Brick!!! Damn! I can’t wait to come back for the 10th edition! Thanks as well to everyone who was in the event, closing gates, cheering one another on, etc… The coke hand up was AWESOME!!! Looking forward to seeing all of my sweaty sisters and brothers in 2013!

  • Neil Beltchenko

    ha my name is too! its like best of both worlds if you don’t know how to spell Neil/Neal yous spell it Neail! no biggie its NEIL! thanks again fun group ride!

  • Tom Needy

    Dave and All the Volunteers!
    Thanks for an amazing day on the bike and the Avery afterwards. The day was filled with many adventures, stories, comraderie, and a great time with my good friend Joe on the bike! It’s rides like these that keep mountain biking “the real deal”. Hats off and I hope for a much better time next year. Great job on all the finishers……what an epic!

  • jason

    Is this years race on the 21st or the 28th? Last I saw Vinotok was ending on September 21st but the race says it is on the 28th. Looking forward to this years race.

  • davidochs

    On Sat. Sept 28th, the CB Classic is taking a turn for the worse (really the better), a left turn, onto Carbon Creek Trail #436. The first lap/loop is completely changing to something new. No, not on Vinotok, yes you can park at the Chamber, (where we’ll meet at 6:30), yes laps finish at the Brick Oven, yes Avery is providing libations, yes could actually die on Carbon Creek, yes we’re riding the Wagon Trail twice, yes a Stubbe will be on course with cold beverages where you least expect them, no you can not be a douchebag….at any time. That’s in regards to not closing gates, passing, stop signs, feeds, going solo but drafting someone on a team, riding in town, traffic, private property, COWS, and riding in town. Let alone being good stewards and comrades to our friends at the FS. Bottom line, we’re a group of cloud forming, flower loving, mother earth loving freedom riders exploring the CB backcountry on a particular day, with peculiar people who like to punish themselves…for free…on public lands (mostly).

    All that being said, first loop is Lupine Trail, Lower Loop, Green Lake, Carbon Creek, Ohio Pass, Wagon Trail. Hardly as complicated as it sounds, and duplicating track with the finish down the Wagon Trail back to the Brick Oven and Crested Butte. 2nd Loop, 403/401 (not doing lower 401), 3rd loop – Dyke Trail/Wagon Trail. Wagon trail, on both occasions, is only the LOWER, or East side of the Wagon trail. ONLY the portion that parallels Kebler Pass. The fun part, the fast part. With the first loop, the Classic will take on another 1500′ of climbing, about a 1/2 hour to the first lap, and a whole bunch of more true CB riding. That first lap is CRAZY hard. Hard technical climbing on Green Lake and Carbon Creek, and hard descending on Carbon Creek. Lupine and Lower Loop are a hoot, beginner trails, but climbing Green Lake Trail, let alone the 12 times you need to get off on the climb up Carbon Creek, let alone the CLIMB DOWN Carbon Creek…you best have your panties out of the wad on ride day! Be prepared to walk, be prepare to be humbled, but also be prepared to be in a one SICK place, just outside of town, and the future connection area to the Gunnison to CB trail.

    Many more details to come, not hard to follow, aptly signed, but you will need to know how to navigate through town of CB itself from the Lower Loop to Green Lake Trail. Once on Green Lake, easy left onto Carbon Creek, and once you’re on it, you’re on it. If a good technical rider, you will gain time on those who are not on this new lap 1. Singlespeeders……be prepared to walk. No worries, you can walk as fast as it is steep, rocky, gnar, and bad ass!

    Also, if you want to finish, and are worried about the timing…..bring lights! If you can do an 8 hour CB Classic, then be prepared for an 8:30. If you can do a 10 hour CB Classic, then be prepared for 11 hours. If you do a 12 hour CB Classic, you best bring lights, extra food, a bivy, MRE’s, a homing beacon, your Mom, and a good mental outlook! If we’re not there at the finish and it’s after midnight, there will be a sign in (out) sheet above the right urinal in the men’s room at the Brick Oven. IF you’re a lady, then you get a half hour off your time for going in there and signing out!

    Most likely, Dan Loftus will still be there. Dan is co-owner of the Brick, proud host along with Brian Schneider, and it’s his 40th Birthday. If you finish after hours, come in for an Avery, give Dan a reach-around, sign the sheet, and give yourself a high five! – Dave

    Fri AM, Sept 27th, things not looking good for the CB Classic this year. Snowed last sunday, and the snow is holding on any north aspects, and in the trees. What has melted has melted slowly, and even lower trails are holding water. 403/401 is out no matter what, and now its most likely snowing there again. Its raining below 10 K, and by the looks of it, the dyke trail is out too.

    Been thinking of alternatives, and the word is they were sloppy messes, again, thats before todays rain. The 10th CB classic may not be….

    Thing is, tomm is supposed to be nice, we have tons of beer from Avery and New Belgium, and its most certainly Dan’s birthday. We may be racing townies around, hot lapping, and sitting at the brick anyway.

  • jason

    That sucks but that is Mother Nature this year it seems. Still coming over tonight for riding whatever dries out, and some beer.

  • davidochs

    Lupine Trail dries out quick, close to town. It seems some stuff is perhaps kicking with a ride down in Gunnison at Hartman’s too. Honestly, that could be the ONLY thing dry tomorrow. Sunday perhaps lower things like the Lupine Trail will be open. Hope to run into you at the Brick!

  • Chad Kittles

    Is this new date change for 2014 final? It is scheduled for the same date as the Breck 100.

  • davidochs

    Yes, it must be. Sorry to the RME and Breck 100, but no other way to do the Classic except this last weekend before Ranchers put livestock all over the Valley and it creates major issues. This is the date that will keep all happy and the race off radar. Despite it being July… which is also when the original CB Classics were held. It’s of course the best time in the high country here, just hope all the snow is gone by then….
