Get ready for 12 hours of Tsali

Written by 

A grueling, 12-hour mountain bike race will be held from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at the Tsali Recreation Area outside Bryson City. Riders can take the course solo or sign up with a team of four to help split the long hours necessary in the saddle to conquer the course. 

The race circuit is a 10-mile loop up hills and through the mud on some of the best single-track mountain bike trails in the eastern United States. And as bikers finish the half-day course after nightfall, headlamps and bike lights on, the team or rider with the most laps wins.

Race registration is limited to 350 riders, but if space is still available riders can sign up beginning at noon the day before the race. Camping and lodging is also available in the area on a first come, first served basis.
