It’s time to turn the volume up to 111!
The Pisgah 111 is the quintessential crusher of a cross-country endurance MTB race. Racers follow a 70 mile course with 11,000′ feet of climbing along the most iconic trails and gravel roads known in Pisgah National Forest. Just peek at the course map and list of trails and you’ll immediately get chills just thinking about the epic scenery and terrain you’ll encounter.
This is a true mountain bike race with no map reading skills required, just follow the arrows. Think of it as the most exciting (and grueling) tour of Pisgah you can imagine during the peak of the leaves changing in the forest.
It certainly wouldn’t hurt to study the map and cue sheets to know what you’re getting yourself into, as some of these trails will test your lungs and your legs while the scenery blows your mind.
