Warmup to the ORAMM or just come out and ride a 24 mile course that doesn’t have you riding in circles! This is backcountry racing at its finest with a shorter course and still all the amenities of a long distance endurance race. New course for 2014. The race will still tackle 3,000’ of climbing over 24 miles as you hit some ORAMM highlights like Old Highway 70, Kitsuma, Star Gap and Jarrett Creek. Celebrate with a huge after party complete with pasta/salad feast, New Belgium Beer and Shannon Ridge Wine on the picturesque Gateway Museum grounds.

New for 2014 – Timed Enduro Section!!! We’ll be timing your descent on Heartbreak Ridge! This will allow for a safety accountability of riders mid course and showcase the true descenders in the endurance world. The timer at the start at the top of Jarrett Creek Road will have a hand held chip reading device and the bottom timer about 1/4 mile before the parking area will have a small structure in place with a chip reading device attached to a laptop computer. Riders will not need to slow as they enter or exit either timing area but can continue to ride normally along the route. The “enduro” section will be included with registration fees and applicable for all participants in the event. We’ll be handing out Enduro awards too!

Web registration is available. Opens on 2014-02-01. Closes on 2014-07-25.

Course Description: This race will run the same course as the ever popular Off Road Assault on Mt Mitchell but will end before the famed climb up Curtis Creek Road to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The race will still tackle 3,000’ of climbing over 24 miles as you hit some ORAMM highlights like Old Highway 70, Kitsuma, Star Gap and Jarrett Creek.
