About the event

The 3rd Annual Valley of the Giants is the premier mountain-gravel event in the Southeast. Explore the best roads in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Smile-inducing descents follow each lung-busting climb. Shady transfer stages encourage a conversational pace as you ride with friends between timed race segments.

This race is a great introduction to mountain gravel, testing your lungs, legs, and confidence in equal measure.

What is the race format:

Get ready for some fun. Our races will maximize your smiles-per-mile with a timed-segment race format.

Rather than embracing the sufferfest of other races, we’re leaning into the party on two wheels. Ride with friends across each transfer stage, then drop the hammer through the finish of each timed segment. Regroup at the finish and ride together to the next segment.

Each course will contain up to three timed segments, covering up to 50% of the course distance.

What's included:

Medical support: We manage our own team of on-course medical support in order to reduce the load on rural EMS resources.

Superbly-signed course: We go overboard on course signage to make sure everybody can make it to the finish line party.

Timed-segment race format: Our races include 1-3 timed segments (depending on course length), challenging riders over our favorite course sections.

Fully-stocked aid stations: Each course will have 2-4 aid stations fully stocked with fresh fruit, soft drinks, sports hydration, snacks, chairs, and porta-potties in the middle of nowhere.

Mechanical and SAG support: Our roving support vehicles carry mechanical assistance in addition to medical support. No matter what happens on-course, we’ve got you covered.
