On Saturday, September 30, 2006, the 9th Annual TFL Mountain Bike Challenge Ride will be held at pristine DuPont State Forest in Henderson and Transylvania Counties, NC.

The Challenge will feature three courses: Advanced ~ 25 miles (approx. 3,500’ of climb), Intermediate ~ 10 – 15 miles (moderate climb) and Beginner/Family Fun – 3 - 5 miles (minimal climb). The first 200 registered riders will get a TFL Hincapie jersey (opt out available). Entry fees are $55 for pre-registered rider with jersey and $35 for pre-registered riders without jersey. Pre-registration deadline is Sept. 20. Event day registration is $65 perrider with jersey (if available) and $45 per rider without jersey. Event will be held rain or shine.
