Publish Date: January 25 2022

If you’re like us, you are going stir crazy after so many years without a Grinduro California. Was it really 2019 that we were last all together?! That is just far, far too long without some maxin’ and relaxin’ with the Grinduro family. That’s why we are purple with excitement that Grinduro California is coming to Mt. Shasta on May 21 this year! That’s just around the corner - imagine blue skies, fresh air and how good the dirt will be in the Spring…

Want to join the fun? Check out the details below on how to enter…

To make Grinduro CA 2022 registration fairer and more accessible to everybody, we are now using a new random selection process. That means that everybody who wants to participate can throw their name in the hat during a two-week window, and then we’ll run a random selection process to select the lucky people who get to join us for some maxin’ and relaxin’ in Mt. Shasta.

To enter, visit the registration link and sign-up for your category. The link will be available at the Grinduro CA page on Tuesday, Feb 1. You’ll need to provide credit card information, but you’ll only be charged once you’ve got a confirmed spot. After you enter, just sit back and hope for a spot! Cross your fingers, cross your toes - heck, even cross your chains!

Random Selection Entry Window Opens:
Tuesday, Feb 1, 12:00am Pacific (open for two weeks)

Random Selection Entry Window Closes:
Monday, Feb 14, 11:59pm Pacific

Random Selection Spots Announced & Participants Charged:
Tuesday, Feb 22

Here’s something extra exciting… Grinduro CA is reserving 50% of the random selection spots for our Women and Open Gender categories. That means that 50% of the random selection spots are guaranteed for Women and Open Gender riders! However, if registration for these categories is lower than 50% during the random selection entry window, the remaining spots will open to the other categories. Spread the word, encourage new people to register, and let's achieve that 50/50 goal!
