Professional and amateur cyclists alike gathered for access to the most coveted roads and off-road sectors around the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. The route featured rolling mountain passes, rough and rocky outcroppings, lake views, dense forests, rivers and waterfalls. Riders had to contend with a variety of road surfaces including hard-packed, flat, loose, rocky, uphill and downhill gravel over a 104+ mile route punctuated by 20 off-road sectors and 11,000 feet of climbing that gave the event a challenging profile.
