Charlotte Sports Cycling is proud to announce they have teamed up with the US National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC to host the Widmer Brothers Rivers Edge Mountain Bike Marathon. The 50 mile mountain bike race on Sunday, September 7 will serve as USA Cycling’s Southeast Marathon Championships. We are extremely excited to host the event and crown twelve
deserving champions at the Rivers Edge Mountain Bike Race at the US National Whitewater Center.
The 50 mile race will contested on over six 8.4 mile laps of tough singletrack. The course terrain at the US National Whitewater Center is rolling with three tough climbs gaining approximately 750ft each lap.
Neutral food and mechanic support for all racers will be provided. The rider pits, neutral support and the start/finish line will be located along the whitewater channel.
The event will be held at the US National Whitewater Center. Not only is the USNWC an awesome place to mountain bike, it’s a great place to bring the whole family. There is lots to do at the Park including, whitewater rafting, climbing(one of the largest outdoor climbing facilities in the U.S.), high ropes, and hopefully they will have their new four person zip line open by the time of the event.
