On Sunday October 16, 2005, the Stanford University MTB Race was held at Santa Teresa Park. It was supposed to be a 2-day event, but because it had rained on Friday night, Saturday's race was cancelled. Saturday was supposed to be a cross-country race. Sunday was supposed to be a downhill race. Instead, the cross-country race was run on Sunday morning, and the downhill was run Sunday afternoon.

The cross-country race started in the Pueblo Area and followed the Pueblo Trail, Hidden Springs Trail, Coyote Peak Trail, Rocky Ridge Trail, Mine Trail, and back to the Pueblo Trail and Pueblo Area. The downhill race started at the top of Coyote Peak, and dropped down the Coyote Peak Trail to the Rocky Ridge Trail, ending in Big Oak Valley. Bicyclists were trucked to the top of Coyote Peak.
