The Inaugural Blue Ridge Pumptrack Challenge series is a novel MTB/BMX points-based competition located at three venues in the heart of North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Presented by Billy Goat Bikes, the series opens October 12th at Industry 9 Componentry. Round 2 heads to The Bike Farm at Oskar Blues REEB Ranch, and Kolo Bike Park hosts the series finale on October 26th.

At each round, a downhill-mountain-bike and motocross inspired competition format offers riders timed qualifying laps and transfer motos plus a LCQ, leading to a main event. Riders also earn points during BIG AIR and best trick competitions. All riders compete one-at-a-time, and accumulate points at each round to determine series overall podium finishers.

This is a fun and festive format sure to challenge riders’ skills, fitness and creativity!
