On stage 3, we get to welcome the 3-day participants to the TSE party. This stage was probably the racer’s favourite stage in 2019. It is an amazing place to ride, but we also think it was a nice break after the queen stage everyone endured the day before. Lol. Whatever the reason, we know that you will love this stage.
Stage 3 will take us away from the scout camp for the first and only day of the race. R.B. Winter Park is about a 55-minute drive from the scout camp, but so worth the trip. Stage 3 takes us back into the Bald Eagle State Forest with a whole new feel and excitement that you have not seen this week yet.
During stage 4, we venture back into the Rothrock State Forest for the last time. S4 will be another racer favourite getting to experience the Tussey Mountain and Three Bridges Trails. And of course, the world-famous #eastcoastrocks are waiting for you again.
Day 5! What a week we’ve all had when we get to this point. With over 30 miles each day, we’re giving you a little break with an 18-mile day to end the week. This also gives us more time for some mtb games before the final awards.
During stage 5, we venture back into the Bald Eagle State Forest for the third time this week. We will also go into private property that can not normally be accessed on bikes, you are in for a treat if you’ve never raced with us before.
