Muddy. Soupy. Sloppy, and mess of good fun.
The 5th Annual Coast Hills Classic Mountain Bike Race in Newport (May 14) is an awesome challenge – a trek of straight up, straight down and slippery turns along a 12 mile course – with a double run of 24 miles for the experts and pros – and 1,600 ft. of elevation gain. The course varies from muddy to gravel with a lot of singletrack in between.
Pavement, shmavement. The Coast Hills Classic all about grueling greatness with plenty of opportunity for bragging rights. And if you like to get gritty on your mt. bike, you’re going to love it.
You’ll also be afforded sweeping coastal views, dense forested land and plenty of beautiful views if you’ve got the mindset to soak them in amidst the gruel of the course. We’re betting your mind will be on other things….

Little Tykes, too
In the true spirit of a strong community, the race isn’t just for the most hardcore riders: there’s also an free race option for little tykes to test their mettle and get a taste of what mt. bike racing is all about.
