Mountain Bike Stage Race
28th Edition

Cross Country ♦ Super D ♦ Short Track

All Mountain Stage Race  Kids Race  


For 27 years, the Keyesville Classic has drawn casual riders, pro mountain bike racers and their friends and families to participate in a fun-filled weekend of bike-related events and activities. From the entertaining Vintage class and trials events to the highly challenging All-Mountain Stage Race where riders tackle the Cross-Country, Short Track and Super D courses all on the same bike, the Keyesville Classic has something for everyone, riders and spectators alike.


Every year, the Keyesville Classic brings together local riders, advocacy groups, industry insiders and racers from all over the West Coast to raise awareness and generate contributions for trail stewardship and youth cycling programs in the Kern River Valley. The beneficiaries include the Southern Sierra Fat Tire Association (SSFTA) in Bakersfield whose volunteers are instrumental in keeping the local trails open, and in keeping the Keyesville Classic running smoothly.
SAMBARN Promotions is honored to be producing the Annual Keyesville Classic Mountain Bike Stage Race. This event has been a cornerstone of mountain biking for more than a quarter century and we look forward to bringing you an exciting weekend of racing, fun and the great outdoors. We are very, very excited to be a part of such a legendary race and will work hard to produce THE Keyesville experience for all.

SAMBARN is the evolution of our love of putting on events for the sport and Sam's current stable of bike races around Bakersfield. We enjoy putting on competitive events for first timers to seasoned pros. Sam Ames and Keith Barnden of SamBarn Promotions, have over 25 years in cycling and endurance sport and have worked for the last 6 years to establish a series of quality cycling events.
