BLUE RIDGE SCHOOL
273 Mayo Drive, St. George, VA 22935
12:00 PM START TIME
Blue Ridge School is a challenging course that includes sustained climbs, tight rocky terrain, and flow trails. It is the most technical course of the season. For most riders, it is a season favorite as the mixed terrain tests rider skills that have been developed during the season. The course begins on a long grass straightaway. It then goes into a challenging singletrack climb. There are numerous double-track sections for passing before a flow trail descent.
