As a sponsor of Stage 2 of the annual Pisgah Stage Race Sept 17-22, 2012, owner Lori gets to wave the starting flag Wednesday (she had to pay Todd off big-time to land this kind of gig.) On the Carl Schenck Loop, be prepared for 32 miles with 4,500 + ft of elevation gain which includes the famed Farlow Gap. (Yeah, we got enough band-aids for everybody.)
Local competitor & owner of Sycamore Cycles, Wes Dickson said, “You really can’t get ready for this race. You just have to go for it. It’s not a cake walk by any stretch, but it is something that most people could be able to do if they are seasoned trail riders.” (from pisgahareasorba.org)
The Pisgah Stage Race is a 5-stage mountain bike event for elite athletes and dirt cycling enthusiasts that has a $3,500 cash purse put on by Blue Ridge Adventures in Brevard NC. You know how your grandfather told you he walked to school in the snow – 10 miles uphill both ways with no shoes on blah blah blah? Well, now you can one-up gramps -
5 Days, 195 Miles, 28,000+ ft of Elevation Gain
