Battle of the Carolinas
We want to find out what area of North and South Carolina has the fastest mountain bikers! Is it the Triad, is it the Triangle, is it Charlotte-Metro Region, is it the mountains or is it the two-wheelers from the Palmetto State? The winning area will place the coveted trophy in their respective shop until the 2013 event. Points will be generated for each finish spot in the race and based on the number of participants. For instance, if there is 25 people in a category, first place will be 25 points, second would 24 and so on.
