Summer Race Series Returns!

Press Release Date: Apr-12-2012

In September of 2011, Beech Mountain Resort Inc. was the first resort in the Southeast to host USA Cycling's Mountain Bike Gravity National Championships. The success of the event spurred an interest in the cycling community, prompting resort management to further the progression of a lift-accessible mountain bike park. This summer, the resort plans to continue the expansion of a unique trail system with a strong focus on beginner terrain.

"We feel a beginner trail is needed to expand the terrain to offer a downhill facility for all skill levels," says General Manager Ryan Costin. "We hope that with the construction phase this year, that will be accomplished."

Christopher Herndon of Brevard, N.C. will return to oversee trail development and prepare the course for USA Cycling Mountain Bike Gravity Nationals Championships. The 2012 National Championship event will take place July 18-22.

Beech Mountain Resort has set additional dates for the much-anticipated Summer Mountain Bike Race Series. The events will occur on the weekends of June 16, August 18, and September 15. The two-day race weekends will offer dual slalom events on Saturday and downhill events on Sunday. The first race weekend, June 16, will serve as a qualifier for Nationals.
