The Third Annual BWR NC, presented by Sierra Nevada, will take place on June 10, in Asheville, NC at the Ride Kanuga location, an incredible destination nestled on 1,400 stunning acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its historic setting features a beautiful 30-acre lake, 20-miles of trails, and full- service meeting and lodging facilities for up to 440 guests. The race promises to be among the hardest if not the hardest course with roughly 134-miles and 30,000 feet of climbing, but the shortness belies that challenge of the parcourse, which will be run in very hot and humid conditions over undulating terrain and difficult off-load sectors..
Created as an extremely challenging race in the spirit of the great European one-day Spring Classics, BWR, with a Belgique theme, is an unusually difficult race. There will be two distances on offer in Asheville, the longer Waffle event and the half as long Wafer event, for those looking to get a taste of the fun without the life-changing commitment of the Waffle.
The BWR will be offering a prize purse to the top three riders, both female and male.
This third annual event will have a deep field of professional riders and an expansive list of hungry amateur riders drawn to the unique opportunity to race alongside their heroes.
Racers and event patrons will be treated to Belgian waffles, pakoras, Sierra Nevada beer, more waffles and more Sierra Nevada on race day.
