The fifth Annual BURN 24-Hour Challenge mountain bike endurance race will be held again this year at Dark Mountain Trail in N. Wilkesboro, North Carolina, May 27-29.
In addition to the 24-Hour event, riders and spectators can compete in Big Wheel races, special contests and a kid's race. All events are open to anyone who wants to ride but registration is limited to 200 teams and 50 solo riders. Special team strategy prizes and the infamous Alien Abduction keep things interesting for all the teams, not just the top runners.
This year's race categories are: solo male; solo female; two-person open; male team open; female team open; coed team open. Teams may have from three to five members and entry fees are per team. +
"This year we've gone over the top to improve the race experience for participants and spectators," said Tyler Benedict, president of sponsor Source Beverages. "The venue will be filled with commercial-free music provided by SIRIUS Satellite Radio, spectators can cool off under fan misters in the expo area, riders' times will be determined using fast, accurate ChampionChip timing, and the trail is better than ever, thanks to the Brushy Creek Mountain Cyclists Club."
