Kick off 2013 with one of the most unique events you’ll find in the Southeast. In recent years this has become just as much of a tradition in the Carolinas as the holidays themselves. It doesn’t matter what the conditions are….. warm = your racing, rain & mud = your racing, sleet/ snow/ ice = your racing. It’ll start with class specific laps around the 7 mile XC course, either on proper short travel or hard tail……. or if you feel you have it in you, you can bring your big bike (must be 13” total travel) and induce the self-imposed pedaling pain process. Finally, cap the day off with the one of kind night-time downhill race. Whatever your poison is, you are guaranteed for a fun filled weekend. Remember, no matter what the conditions, you are racing….. God I hope we have some snow and ice this year, always make things SO INTERESTING!!!!!
