This is backcountry mountain bike racing at its finest with a shorter course and still all the amenities of a long distance endurance race. The Annual Jerdon Mountain Challenge will run on some of the same trails as the ever popular Off Road Assault on Mt Mitchell in Old Fort, North Carolina. Racers will tackle 3,600′ of climbing over 26 miles as you hit some great trails like Kitsuma, Star Gap and Jarrett Creek. Celebrate with a huge after party on the picturesque Gateway Museum grounds.
