      Sycamore Cycles Swank 65

      Sample some of Pisgah’s best trails in this great season closer – including the trails in back bowls of Pisgah  ether known as Pilot Mountain!
      The Sycamore Cycles Swank 65 is mountain bike racing at its most primeval, far removed from civilization and polluted air. The race begins at 2500 feet, and consists of a triad of cloverleaf shaped loops winding around Gloucester Gap in Pisgah National Forest.  Rolling over rugged mining roads, fun single track, tough climbs and hell-raising descents, the exhilarating course will test your skills and desire as you explore the devilish terrain of the Pisgah National Forest.
      THIS RACE IS LIMITED BY THE US FOREST SERVICE TO 200 PARTICIPANTS.

      Start Time: Packet pickup at 8AM. There will be a Race Meeting at the Start line at 9:50. Every racer must attend meeting. You must have your shuttled items ready by 9:45AM. Race start will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.
      Rest Stops/First Aid: There will be three fully-stocked rest stops on the course. The rest stops have food, Energy Drink, and H20. We have a drop system organized so you can arrange to have your personal supplies at the rest stops. First Aid will be at every rest area and the Start/Finish area. Restroom facilities are also at the Start/Finish.
