    Hickory knob tri

    I am going to be in the area next month and figured I'd do this xterra at hickory knob. Any tips on the trails around there? I'm a flat lander from indiana.

    Yes

    First you swim as fast as you can, then you bike as fast as you can, then run as fast as you can. When it is all done, if you were faster then everyone else, you will win.



    J/k

    Seriously you are pretty much back in flat land where the event is being held.

    Although, I hear the swim is uphill.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.

    Thats perfect thank you ha ha ha.

    How technical is the course? For a flatlander, I'm actually better at hills than technical. I will be racing my new to me bike for the first time there, and I haven't been able to get it out on the trails as of yet.

    No prob.

    If you come down, save a little energy for Western Carolina trails.
    DuPont, Bent Creek, Pisgah, Tsali, etc.

    No real climbing. There are a few rock sections that interesting. Very rideable but can catch you off guard the first time. Very few place to pass. I find if a fun ride and scenic as it goes along the shores of Lake Thurman.
