June 3rd, 2023

Registration opens October 18th!

The route is ~100 miles with 8,000' of elevation gain and is 80% dirt. Also available are two shorter course options; ~35 miles and ~60 miles. Racers and riders from around the world will be invited to lose themselves and find this two-wheeled paradise. A full weekend of high sierra fun for riders and non-riders alike.

If you need more inspiration to come here, watch this short film, Lost on Purpose, created by gravel riders Yuri Hauswald and Kurt Gensheimer and film producer Chris Ruedy with Lost Sierra Productions. It tells the story of the Connected Communities Project aboard a gravel bike, some of which is filmed on sections of this year’s Lost and Found race course.

Come to ride some of the most beautiful and vast alpine valleys California has to offer.

This race supports Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship's Lost Sierra Route, connecting 15 mountain communities to promote economic prosperity through recreation.
