challenge

Uwharrie MTB Challenge (UMBC) will be held in Uwharrie National Forest at the Wood Run Trailhead just east of Troy, North Carolina.  We will be hosting the camping in the Badin lake Recreation Area. 

We're excited to bring this new event to the Trans-Sylvania Production nation.  This race is inspired by our 5-day stage race, Trans-Sylvania MTB Epic.  There's nothing better than a weekend of riding/racing and spending time with fellow shredders.
