    The Skinny
    Come stay with us, lodging on site. Choose from cabins, Rv hookups, and traditional ol’ tent camping.

    Slalom…Qualies start at 12pm, finals following immediately. This is one of the best tracks in the south, designed and built by Chris Herndon with the help of the Brevard College cycling team. Professional Gate with Air ram and infrared timing system good to 1/100th of a second. This is real Slalom racing.

    XC….This is some real Pisgah Racing. Must have approved 10 watt halogen/HID or 180 lumes LED lighting system to participate. NO Flashlight lighting!!! Course is Short and Hard, Laps are short but don’t underestimate the difficulty. The climbs are steep and the descents are even steeper. Be ready to climb! First class starts at 6pm--beginner men, followed by sport at 7, Expert at 8.30. Single speeds race expert and Double up on your race winnings!

    DH…two tracks, begginer/sport will race a super fun flowy trail with a small section or gravel pedaling. Pro/Expert will run the “serious” track. It is short but sweet, record time is set at 1.34 but it is packed with steeps, berms, loam, jumps. To have a perfect run is hard!! Beginner sport start at 11, Pro/Expert 1pm.

    Awards…Saturday Events will be held at the Bonfire on top of the hill!!! DH awards immediately following race Sunday.

    Directions:
    From Brevard Take HWY 64 West 5.5 miles, Turn Right At Blue Adventure Village Sign, Take Immediate Left into Adventure Village

    Oh, stickied and bumped too.

    Thanks. It's gonna be a great time. I'm trying to decide if I'll race or not. The girlscouts all jacked about it. The DS course is sick!

    Double up - - do the DS and the DH. You'll have a ball. I suck at slalom but it's still fun.

    I hurt myself on a DS course, but that's because I'm a lycra-wearing weenie.

    Oh, that one looks like a LOT of fun - - a bit more stretched out to where it looks more do-able on a DH rig. Your Bullit would be a natural.
