The Fire Mountain Inferno XC & Enduro Weekend will return to Cherokee, NC on April 27 & 28, 2019. Taking place at the Fire Mountain Trails System, known as some of the flowiest trails in the east, the Fire Mountain Inferno consists of two days of cross country and enduro mountain bike racing for all levels of experience.
The weekend’s program will be similar to 2018, featuring a day of cross-country racing on Saturday and a day of Enduro racing on Sunday. Cross Country races will feature three categories: Beginner & Junior, Sport-Single Speed and Expert. The Enduro races will have four separate stages with various distances and elevation loss.
All racers will receive an event shirt and special gift. Those racing both days, doing Dante’s Double, will receive a special event shirt and belt buckle.
The Fire Mountain Trails System are a newly constructed network of trails with more than 10.5 miles total winding through the Qualla Boundary in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. Cherokee NC is located just 1 hour from Asheville, two hours from Knoxville, TN and approximately 3 hours from metro Atlanta GA, Charlotte NC and Greenville SC.
The 2018 event attracted 125 riders from all over the southeast. This year we are expecting to expand that rider field on both days.
Registration is now open for both days of the 2019 Fire Mountain Inferno XC & Enduro Weekend.
