RACE MORNING

When arriving at Biltmore you will follow traffic to Antler Hill Village and be parked by Biltmore Estate Parking Hosts. Leave yourself PLENTY of time to get onto the estate and to the parking lots. It takes a minimum of 20 minutes when coming onto the estate to get to Antler Hill Village. When the first races begin at 7:45am, traffic will be held on the estate until at least 8:05am. SO PLEASE DON’T BE LATE!

Please note: If you are participating in the duathlon, your bike will need to go to the transition area and be set up prior to the race. So leave yourself plenty of time to unload your bike and race items at your car, walk your items to transition and get set-up prior to the race start. There is NO DROP OFF or UNLOAD AREA! Please orient yourself with transition when you arrive at the event and how you will go in/out the transition area on Run 1, Bike IN/Bike Out and Run 2. If you go out the transition area the wrong way during the race, your transition split time will be inaccurate and may not show up for you in the results. See Hub Map for details on transition and location of the zone in Antler Hill Village.

George Hincapie to ride in iDaph Event’s Gravel Grinder

George Hincapie to ride in iDaph Event’s Gravel Grinder

What’s it like to be George Hincapie for a day? Watch our video and find out.

One of the most well-known names in the cycling industry - George Hincapie - will be riding in the Gravel Grinder on Sunday, September 15th, as part of iDaph Event’s Asheville Off-Road Series at Biltmore Estate.

George competed 17 times in the Tour de France and won three U.S. National Road Race championships. He was a key domestique for Lance Armstrong, and a domestique for Cadel Evans and Alberto Contador, two pro-cyclists who went to win the Tour de France.

We recently met George at his hotel in Greenville, SC - Hotel Domestique - and shot a video of him to help promote our Gravel Grinder event. George was such a great sport; instead of shooting an average, run-of-the-mill type of shoot, we decided to show off the kind of baller lifestyle we think a pro-cyclist should have.

And since Wright Creative, Inc. was on the scene, you can bet there were smoke bombs and champagne involved.

We are super grateful for George and his time with us, and we can’t wait to watch him crush it in our Gravel Grinder event on Sunday. George will be riding with some other well-known cyclists that day, including pro-cyclist Chris Butler, and Bobby Julich. (Bobby won third overall in the Tour de France in 1998).

Get ready for another exciting Asheville Off-Road Series on September 15th. Prices go up September 11th at midnight, so if you haven’t signed up yet now is the time! The event includes 3 events in one day:

10K Run

Duathlon (Run/Bike/Run)

Gravel Grinder (20, 40, 60 mile options)

Come join us for this fun and challenging multi-sport event at Biltmore Estate! Please don’t think you have to keep up with the pros; these events are for all types of athletes and all levels of abilities.

Cash prizes offered for this year’s 40 Mile Gravel Grinder

Cash prizes offered for this year’s 40 Mile Gravel Grinder

Bike Fast. Get the Cash.

How fast can you grind through the Gravel Grinder? Asheville Bicycle Company is giving away cash prizes for this year’s 40 mile Gravel Grinder at the Asheville Off Road Series. Prizes will be given to male and female overall winners and masters winners. 

“If we can make more people happy, the better,” says owner Craig Friedrich.

Craig started selling bicycles in 1993 and has been owner and partner of Asheville Bicycle Company and Ski Country for almost 30 years. He grew up road biking and mountain biking, and has spent most of his life riding Asheville’s scenic roads and mountain bike trails. He became involved with the Asheville Off Road Series through Biltmore Estate several years ago.

“They (Biltmore) asked me to produce a bike race,” Craig explains. “In doing so…after some exploration work, I met Daphne through the Kiwanis run…and it was pretty obvious that with the size and scale Biltmore wanted for this event…I asked her to do it. She’s just so damn good at everything she does.” 

Asheville Bicycle Company is now one of the main sponsors of the event and has been since its inception. They provide bike mechanics on the West side of the Biltmore Estate for anyone having issues on the trail, and at the start of the race for any last minute repairs and to top off air. 

This will be the first year Asheville Bicycle will be offering cash prizes for the 40 mile Gravel Grinder. Craig hopes the prizes will continue to draw more participants and build momentum for this multi-sport event. 

“This event does bring a lot of extra income into the community: Lodging, food and beverage. It’s not just good for Asheville, it’s also good for the cycling industry,” says Craig. “It highlights Asheville’s charms on what the riding community offers - the access we have, and the beauty of Asheville and Biltmore Estate.”

The Gravel Grinder - part of the Asheville Off-Road Series - takes place on Sunday, September 15th. There are 20, 40, and 60 mile options for this event.

The event also offers a Duathlon and 10K that same day. Relay teams are an option when you sign up. Prices increase September 5th!
