    Any Hill Climb TT In NC?

    Reading all of these racing posts has given me the bug. Does anyone know of a hill climb time trial in North Carolina? I did a search, but only turned up old results, and law firms.

    Thanks in advance,
    Richard

    There was one in Asheville last Saturday. I'm guessing the TT during the French Broad Classic (July 20-22) involves a hill climb but I'm not sure.

    The Georgia Cup race in Dahlonega is closeish to NC, and has a good uphill TT. There is also a hill climb TT series in Virginia IIRC.

    As Steve said, there are ones on and off in A-vegas as well.

    NOTE: I was apparently wrong about the French Broad TT course having some hills in it. It is an out-and-back 20K course along the French Broad River (duh). Meaning it's pretty flat.

    There used to be a Beech Mountain hill climb TT but I think it's been a couple of years since they've done it.
