5 Days and Counting...
Riders ready, watch the gate! Get ready boys and girls, this year is going to be one of the best enduros yet. My hands and back are in pain for all the trail work that took place this weekend, but my pain is your gain.. This year you will once again be tested and I hope will ask yourself wtf on a few times throughout the weekend. I would recommend bringing some suspension for a few of the stages this year. If you don't have it, don't worry, you will survive..
So, here is the plan:
Saturday: Meet at Alexander Mountain Bike Park for XC, Fourcross and DH events at 10:00 am. We'll start with XC so as to get the suffering over with first then move on to more gravity assisted events DH and Fourcross. There will be more events/festivities taking place later in the day and start times will be based on how long it takes to wrap up the first three events.
Saturday Night: 8 o'clock Party at the Crow's Nest. 105 Orchard Place Asheville NC 28801. DJ Big Hair will be rocking the beats and a late night Best Trick (on Rollers) will take place for points towards the overall ranking. Parking on the hill is limited so please park in the gravel lot at the corner of Cherokee and Orchard Road or better yet ride a bike! Hike up the hilll where you see the tiki torches and you're here.
Sunday: Meet at Bent Creek Neighborhood Park at 10:30. Pumptrack TT, Skinnies, Short Track TT and "Almost DH" race will take place. Sunday afternoon will feature Short Track DH at the Caldwell Compound with BBQ and after party.
That's the overview, you know the drill. Show up and ride your bike like a rockstar.
