Bootlegger 100 Cycle Race

 

Registration is now OPEN for one of the most challenging and scenic gravel events of the year: The Bootlegger 100. Register Here

The Bootlegger 100 will be the most challenging and scenic gravel event of your season.

There are two route choices (58 and 107 miles) that both start and finish in downtown Lenoir, NC and travel through the beautiful and rugged Wilson Creek Gorge.

The 58 mile route has approximately 4500 feet of climbing while the 107 mile route will take you up to the Blue Ridge Parkway and includes approximately 9700 feet of climbing!

The course will be well-marked in Pisgah Productions style and post-race meals and refreshments will be provided.

Testimonials:

‘My main takeaways, based on seven or eight serious gravel events, Battenkill, a few of the major fondos including Levi’s and Hincapie and nearly 100 USAC races  was 1) that the race was unusually well organized. 2) It is one of the most challenging “100” length gravel races in the country and maybe THE most challenging.’    -Jay P. 5/14/18

‘The ride/race itself you couldn’t ask for a better organized ride. All the turns were marked either with an arrow and or orange flagging tapping hanging from the trees before the turns and on stakes or hanging from the trees after the turn to assure you that you were still on course. They had 3 controls/rest stops on the 60 miler. The guy at the 41.7 one was way over the top cooking up grilled cheese sandwiches which for sure hit the spot. The burritos and beer at the finish line were great also.’     -Larry B. 4/24/18
