    April 14th PNF Race

    I saw info on this in the SORBA forum, but haven't seen anything here.

    Assault on Pisgah's Pilot, (4-14-2013) - *At The Ridge FunTrails*****************"Pisgah's New Playground"

    Registration goes up $10 tomorrow. Looks like a fun course.

    Best would be a matter of perception.

    Looks like a good race for people like me who aren't really ready for the sadistic nature of Eric and his Pisgah Production races.

    Hopefully at least a few arrows to keep you on course and an aid station or 2. $60 is pretty reasonable for this type of race. Maybe the promoter will show up here and fill us in a bit more.

    It looks like this guy only had 8 people show up for his last. Race. I hope he gets a better crowd this time. Then again, I could come in last and say I had a top 10 finish.

    He would probably have a few more if he did a better job of actually promoting.
    I mean this is one of the biggest (if not the biggest) mountain bike websites around and no word of his race here until you posted it the day before it goes up in price.

    He should give you a free entry fee for doing his job. lol

    Maybe they just give you a cue sheet and a pack of gatorade to mix with the water you have to get out of Cove Creek instead of providing an aid station. Either way, I signed up for the race. Maybe I can win the over 50 Clydesdale beginner class.

    I pre-rode the course with him 4 weeks ago. I liked it. I let him know you guys have questions. I could do this race with no aid stations but the directional arrows would be nice. I can get lost even with arrows.

    The top three receive a custom made trophy, there is a point system for a cash prize at the end on the season and yes, there are 3 well stocked rest stops. All pre-registered riders will receive a t-shirt and a home cooked meal after the race!

    please visit- www.atrfuntrails for more info.

    You
    will experience the famous Long Branch/ Cat Gap trail. The table top jumps are
    the BEST in the country!
    Are there really some table tops on Cat Gap trail?

    tables on cat gap? cove creek best downhill in pisgah?

    seems really odd that the person writing the description hasn't ridden the trails (despite the pre-ride mentioned earlier). and i see no mention of a fs permit...I wonder if this is legit...

    The jumps are down several stair step tables, you can catch as much "air" as you want...
