The Gateway Express Youth MTB Race! A post-interscholastic season event in true Pisgah Productions style: 100% fun focused, with a laid back atmosphere, professional RFID timing, and a race course that has some bite.

Centered at the Gateway Trails in Old Fort, NC there is plenty of parking, room for team pits, and miles of beginner to intermediate trails.

6th and 7th grade level athletes will be treated to a 4.3 mile, 446′ single track course with plenty of room to pass and just a few technical sections.

8th grade, 9th grade and Junior Varsity level athletes will experience a 6 mile, 689′ single track course that includes stretches of narrow corridor, more technical sections, and a long flow-trail style descent along the way.

Varsity level athletes will be challenged to tough-out TWO laps of the 6 mile course!
