General Race Info
Cyclists and Triathletes get ready for the return of the Jump off Rock Hill Climb presented by Hunter Subaru on Sunday, August 8th at 3 pm. The hill climb, time trial, cycling race made its debut in 2017 and returns this summer with much anticipation to Laurel Park located in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
The cycling race is for all abilities! Test your fitness and challenge yourself to ride up this five-mile climb as fast as you can. This is an individual, time-trial-style event designed to challenge any type and ability of cyclists. You will be racing against the clock and will leave in one-minute increments. It is a race against yourself. This is not a mass start event.
The one-way, time trial race starts at the Town of Laurel Park offices and goes up, up, up Laurel Park Scenic Highway to the top of Jump off Rock where panoramic views await you at the finish line. This event will be professionally produced and timed.
Not only will this ride challenge you, there are also prizes and awards for the King and Queen of the Mountain and random giveaways to finishers. You don’t have to be the fastest to win in our giveaways!
The in-person Jump off Rock Hill climb coincides with the self-serve Lung Buster Time Trial Series that takes place this summer.

The Lung Buster Time Trial Series is a series of cycling events in Western North Carolina held with the intent of providing all participants a professional racer experience, no matter how fast or experienced you are.
We look forward to seeing our community of cyclists challenge themselves in what is sure to be a lung-bustin’ race to the top of Jump off Rock.
