The Infineon Technologies Cougar Mountain Classic at Infineon Raceway will be held in California, USA, on September 9-11, 2005. Whether it's a 'slowride' around the twisting road course, a bicycle rodeo for young children, a classic swap meet, a half-road, half-cross country trail run, or a vintage bicycle concourse, there will be something for everyone during the weekend, which enters its second year in the Sonoma Valley (it debuted in 2004 as the California Outdoor Sports Championships).

For those who have never traversed the serpentine road course, there's the Supercuts Road Slowride, which takes place on Saturday, Sept. 10, at noon. Members of professional race teams and legendary frame builders will also take part in this casual ride around the raceway. Entry fee is $10 and children 12-and-under ride for free when accompanied by an adult.

Legendary custom frame builder Bernie Mikkelsen will also be on-hand at the concourse and will craft a classic steel, external-lugged frame during the event. He will begin his work on Friday and should be done by Sunday afternoon. This retro-new Euro Classic signature bicycle will be raffled off on Sunday of race weekend, with proceeds going to charity.
