Looking to take a trip that weekend and possibly do a race
PMBAR is May 3rd but it is sold out.
Keep your eyes open for people selling entries though.
It is a 2 person team race so if they are selling both entries you will need a partner.
If you don't have one, shouldn't be hard to find one.
Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
May 4th there is a race in Columbia SC, part of Maxxis southern classic series
Here is a event that may be worth checking out.
Annual French Broad River Mountain Bike Race
VP Pisgah Area Sorba
Middle Mountain Momma at Douthat State Park VA is an excellent backcountry race on May 4. 20 miler starts at noon and the 40 miler starts at 9:30.
