What a great race!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out yesterday and enjoyed the beautiful weather, great scenery, and incredible hospitality at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club.

Huge thanks to all the volunteers and BRMC staff for ensuring that everyone had a great time. Thanks as well to Blowing Rock Ale for serving up such delicious beers, Beyond Category Cycling, Panaracer tires, Capo Cycling Apparel, and local super rep Dave Frye for their very generous support.

The third annual Beyond Category Cycling Ascent was the best one yet, and we are looking forward to returning next year, possibly earlier in the summer and on a Friday night to help bring out a bigger crowd.

Results are posted and the standings are updated for the Capo Cycling Apparel King of Pain Series.
