When is Sturdy Dirty 2021?

We are still sorting out all the things so more details to come. Registration opened on June 1, 2021 at 9am PST and we sold out in less than a week! JOIN WAILIST

I see that the Sturdy Dirty is a "women-only" event. What does that mean?

ALL THE "WOMEN" :-)

We use an inclusive definition of "woman" and "female" and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified. Men and women are welcome to spectate and volunteer, but only women may race.

I need to change something in my registration. How do I do that?

Just create an account

In your email confirmation or receipt you should have a link to "Set Up Account Now". Creating an account allows you to manage your registration and make basic changes to your information. If you can't make the change, just contact us!

What level of experience do I need to be able to participate in Train2BSturdy program?

MINIMAL

None, really. We do expect those participating to be mountain bikers and have some experience on the bike. For group rides, we will break into smaller groups of similar skill and fitness levels. If you are new to strength training, it is important to start with lower repetitions and rounds of exercise while paying close attention to your form, moving through the exercises properly to avoid injury. Then work your way up, adding repetitions, weight, and rounds as you get stronger. 

What level of experience do I need to be able to race the Sturdy Dirty?

INTERMEDIATE SKILL/FITNESS

Sturdy Dirty racers should have, at minimum, intermediate skill and fitness levels to be comfortable with the trails on course. Our Lite, Beginner and Sport race race segments will mostly be on blue downhill trails that tend to be winding, with roots and rocks and rollable jumps and drops. You will want to be able to stay on your bike for the majority of the trail, though walking a small number of features is an option. We recommend trying out the trails at Raging River and seeing how Poppin Tops and middle/lower PT feel, or head over to the lower sections of CCDH.

Are you doing any dig days?

YES!

We are doing everything in our power to hold monthly dig days. Check out the Events page for details and sign-up.
