Event Watch: The 9th Annual Pisgah Stage Race

The 9th Annual Pisgah Stage Race 
Adventure lovers, mark your calendars for the week of April 10th - 15th, because the 9th Annual Pisgah Stage Race returns to the Pisgah National Forest! 
What it is
Pisgah Forest is known the world over as much for its incredible mountain biking trails as it is for its show stopping beauty! This event, modeled after the BC Bike Race, Cape Epic and La Ruta, will bring hundreds of riders to the area to experience both. For 5 days, this endurance event will showcase some of the East Coast's most rugged trails, and along the way riders will get to experience the stunning beauty of our forests - the rhododendron tunnels, the crystal clear creeks, the lush tree canopy over head - these and so much more! According to testimony provided by riders of past years, Blue Ridge Adventures has consistently improved this event year after year, so participants can expect a well planned and excellently executed race!
The race is staged in the stunning mountain town of Brevard, NC - right in the heart of the Pisgah Mountains. Transylvania County is widely believed to be one of the most beautiful counties in Western North Carolina. With over 200 documented waterfalls, pristine protected forests, and hundreds of well kept trails, we couldn't agree more! Riding the rugged terrain through this amazing part of the state is a reward in and of itself, but at the end of the long and arduous race, riders will receive finishing awards as well.
