Start time is 9am!!!
Registration Cut-off: We are limited to 300 participants. It’s important to register early!!!! Barnburner registration will be CLOSING on 10am Wednesday October 13th, 2021 so we can get everything squared away. There WILL be same day registration for the Barnburner, but event t-shirts and socks cannot be guaranteed.
What bike to ride: Not sure which arrow in the quiver to bring? The Barnburner is more of an endurance race than technical challenge, so we would recommend few different bikes. It’s very common to see hardtails, short travel full suspensions and even gravel bikes on these trails! Long travel is not recommended, unless you just roll that way. Join one of the prerides to find out what the trail is like! Preride details are on the Overmountain Cycles Facebook Page.
Cut-off time: Cut off time is 3pm at the Long Arm Access off HWY 126 on the return trip from the Fonta Flora Trail. Riders past this time will be directed to finish the race on HWY 126 back to the finish line.
Food: Single Wyde will be supplying food for participants and spectators. Vegan/Vegetarian options will be available. Little Guatemala will be supply coffee to keep you amped.
