Three Peaks USA: Hardest Cyclocross Race is coming to Beech Mountain, NC on September 25.
75K and 35K routes, separate mountain bike division and relays.
Pre-registration is only $50 for 75K, $40 for $35K, and $70 for two-person relays through until Sept 23, $60/$50/$80 day-of.

Three Peaks USA is an homage to the legendary Three Peaks Cyclo-Cross in the UK and PA's notorious Iron Cross.

This is a FULLY SUPPORTED event with a REST STOP (you pass three times) with FOOD, thanks to the generous support of Fred's General Mercantile. Unlike our namesake, we are offering a separate MTB division in the 35K and 75K races, although if you want to get a new cyclocross bike, race sponsor Boone Bike and Touring has got a ton of great Specialized and Treks in stock

Furthermore, the event is helping to support the Mountain Alliance, which means part of your (ridiculously low) entry fee is going to put local kids on bikes

The 35K route - "One Peak" features one long climb, but no seriously technical sections, and features some stunning views on quiet roads that you otherwise can not get access to. It shares the same start/finish at the 75K route.

The 75K route features a demoralizing climb up Dark Ridge and Old Beech Mountain Roads, and finishes with a long, difficult (but not technical) climb on jeep roads up the back side of Beech Mountain. However, if you decide you are not up to the task, Mountain Alliance will drive you back up the mountain, or you can also split the 75K with a buddy.

So sign up now so you can take part in one of the most memorable rides of the year!
