Pisgah 4 day stage race - Brevard, North Carolina
Day one of the Pisgah 4 day stage race was a bit of beauty parade. Riding as a team of two we had been told to turn up at 2.30 to pick up our sign on packs and get ready for the first day’s time trial. It had been raining relentlessly for the past 36 hours and if the truth were told we were no longer quite so keen on racing.
