Freeze your icicle off at winter bike race

Written by 

out icycleRiders are invited to compete and spectators are invited to watch at the Icycle Mountain Bike Race at Fontana Village on Jan. 26. The seven-mile course consists of varied terrain with rocks, roots, creeks and open passing lanes that make up some of the most notable Western North Carolina singletrack.

There will be two waves of cross-country racing, starting at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. followed by a nighttime downhill race beginning at “dark-thirty.” There will be an event after-party, awards and a bonfire. The race will have a variety of skill levels and ages. Entry fees for one event is $30 and $50 for two events.
