good mtb races within 3hrs of asheville

thinking about getting into racing this year and was just wondering where are the best races in the area. also are there some kind of points series for the wnc region? thanks in advance for any info

id like to try some of the 24hr races too and live for general epic explorations of wilderness and blissful misery of the most devine level. anyone need a team member? im not too slow but not ned overend either. here's a couple picks of my racing rigs.

Very nice bikes.

For races check with your local bike shops. I know there is a race coming up in Tsali on May 6th. Here is a link to it.

Uwharrie is coming up in a couple weeks - good times if you've never ridden there before. No huge climbs/descents, but lots of water crossings, baby head rocks and faaast trail.

I won't be there this year, but I can vouch that the SHCC guys run a good race
