This year marks the 20th anniversary of the race, the 21st year of Yuba Expeditions being in business, and the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship is now over a decade old. The shop, the race and the stewardship all started at different times and for different reasons, but are all now combined as part of a broader vision. That vision is simple: Working with local agencies, the primary goal of SBTS is to maintain, preserve and improve the trails in and around this region. It is important that these trails continue to be a recreational asset for the communities in this area, so that they can be a positive part of the local economy, and so that they remain intact and accessible for the enjoyment of future generations.

The entry fees generated by the Downieville Classic are fed back into the Wafts via local paid crews working alongside an army of dedicated volunteers, some of whom come from hundreds of miles away to lend their hand toward keeping these world-class trails in tip-top shape. For the stewardship, and everyone else involved in the Downieville Classic, this is more than just a bike race; it is also a gathering of the tribe. Those who, like the racers and the folks at the SBTS, feel that the trails in local hills are something truly unique and special are invited to share their vision. Volunteers are welcome at SBTS workdays to help craft the next generation of trails. "Spread the word about what they are doing up here," say organizers, "and help raise the profile of this truly unique destination."
