Description

Get ready to race your mountain bike on some of the best and toughest urban single track the East Coast has to offer. The James River Park trails will give local mountain bikers and visiting riders alike a chance to test their skills. The hard work and mostly volunteer effort that has gone into maintaining and developing these trails make the Urban Assault a race to remember. Even though we have a Beginner division, we wouldn't recommend this race for newbies.

Course Description

AGAIN this year, we will be following the course in the opposite direction than we have in the past.  We have followed the James River Park trails counter-clockwise, but this year the race will go in the other direction. The course will continue to start and finish in the Belle Isle parking lot adjacent to Tredegar Street. Racers then will ride up the gravel road and take a hard right up to the Lee Bridge. Cross the bridge, veer right and follow the course parallel to Riverside Drive and onto the Buttermilk Trail. Continue west on Buttermilk to Reedy Creek.

Head down through the far left “chunnel” or culvert, up the rocks and then make a clockwise lap of Forest Hill Park. Cross the concrete bridge before heading back through the culvert. Continue west on Buttermilk and descend carefully down the rocks below the Boulevard Bridge. Cross the Boulevard Bridge and turn left to access the North Bank Trail. Follow North Bank up the wooden ramp and the Stairway to Heaven climb.

DETOUR this year: Pop out onto Kansas Avenue, with an immediate left onto Hampton Street.  This will be followed by a right onto New York Avenue, a right onto Georgia Street and then a left back onto Kansas.  Head east on Kansas and take a right on Texas Avenue. Follow the North Bank Trail back to the finish at the Belle Isle parking lot. (If you are doing the 20-mile course, you will head left and back up to the Lee Bridge and do another lap.)
