Pisgah Stage Race: Stage 5 and Overall Results

Saturday April 14, 2018

Stage 5 is the Industry Nine’s Land of the Waterfall route.

This final stage shuttles racers by bus to a remote start.  From there riders start the long steep climb up to Farlow’s Gap. Then starts the technical decent down Farlow and Daniel’s Ridge, crossing several waterfalls along the way.  Racers get a much needed break at Davidson River and then the grueling seven mile climb to Bracken Mountain begins. Bracken Mountain is the final Enduro section and includes fast flow sections, switchbacks and even some climbing. Riders then finish at the Brevard Music Center to celebrate.

Racers board buses for a shuttle up to a remote start.

Stacey Mulligan climbs her singlespeed up to Farlow’s Gap.

Bacon handups!
