The Pisgah Mountain Bike Stage Race, held in Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina, announced changes to its schedule this week, moving from last year’s October date to an earlier slot of September 14-18 this year, while also adding an additional day of racing.

Promoters hope that the date change, along with a beefed up prize list of $20,000, will attract more riders from the cyclocross world, noting that October is typically the time when mountain bikers start racing ‘cross.

The race also announced the addition of more singletrack and longer trails in this year’s edition, responding to feedback from the 2009 inaugural event.

The Pisgah Mountain Bike Stage Race is a 5-day series through the back-country trails of North Carolina, with the start and finish near the town of Brevard, North Carolina. This year’s race will feature 178 miles of racing over the five days with over 40,000 feet of elevation gain in total. For more information on the race, visit their website here.
