The Couch Potato is an annual MTB race with a short enough course to make it doable from "off the couch".  This is if you have some prior miles in your legs and used to the Pisgah terrain.  Rolling over rugged mining roads, classic Pisgah singletrack, cursing climbs and giggling descents.  This course will test your skills and desire as you explore the intoxicating terrain of the Pisgah National Forest.  Treating you to the finest trails at the entrance of the Forest.  Good food, brews and comradery will be at the finish to comfort you after a long day in the saddle!

THIS RACE IS LIMITED BY THE US FOREST SERVICE TO 200 PARTICIPANTS.
