Tour de Pocahontas
Postponed to be rescheduled
This is designed as a stage race. The stage race registration will include all 3 races, camping (first come first served in rustic cabins), or bring your own tent or camper (no hookups) for Saturday night.
For those who know the park: General course description: the event starts on the fireroads from Algonquin Eco Camp to the Morgan Trails (about 4.7 miles allowing the field to thin out). You will ride the Blue loop of the Morgan trails, then head across to Swift Creek trails (via road behind pool) to climb Blueberry Hill. You will the ride the fire road to Blue Jay Way to the lower part of Corkscrew to Sunsetter. Once you end Sunsetter you make a right on fireroad to the top of Bell Built. You will ride the entire Bell Built Loop and then descend Blueberry. This will take you back to the bridge at Swift Creek. From there you will ride behind pool, cross the beaver creek bridge on your way to the Lakeview 1 connector. From there you will ride Lakeview 1>2>3>2>1 where you will exit at the Algonquin Camp where you will finish about 200m down the camp “driveway”.
Day 1 race #2:
TdP-Time Trial will be a about 1/2 of Lake View I loop plus the Algonquin camp road where the Start Finish will be located. This distance totals about 2 1/2 miles. Each racer will be assigned their own start time and you race against the clock!
TdP-Lake View XC Race will include part of Lakeview 1, and all of Lakeview 2 and 3. The number laps will be decided on the division entered… 1, 2 or 3 laps of the Lakeview Mountain bike trails (see registration for number of laps). This will be all single track except for the transition through Algonquin start/finish.
