Sprocket Fuel XC Mountain Bike Race

Harris Lake County Park in New Hill, NC

Saturday, August 13, 2022 (Rain Date - Saturday, August 27, 2022)

Sprocket Fuel is a cross-country mountain bike race that will challenge mountain bikers of all ability levels, from kids and first time racers to experts.  During registration, athletes will self-select their class from 25 skill and age-based classes.  Depending on class, athletes will start separately and complete 1-3 laps on a course that includes smooth, twisty, and flowing single-track trails.

The trails at Harris Lake are AWESOME and now is your chance to race on some of the best single-track in the Triangle Area.  

Registration:  This race is limited to 300 total racers.  Race day registration will not be available.  Reg fee increased the closer we get to the race.  REGISTER EARLY TO SAVE $ AND GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT ON THE STARTING LINE.

Your reg fee includes

  • healthy competition on a fun and challenging course
  • professional race operations
  • volunteer support
  • medical support from UNC Orthopaedics at Pittsboro
  • aid station support
  • chip timing
  • tasty post-race food (non-alcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing Company, sliders from Breakaway Cafe, soft drinks, chips, cookies, trail bars, fresh fruit, etc - free food for racers and volunteers)

Need more incentive to register early?  You could win one of four $300 Bontrager Blaze WaveCel MTB Helmets courtesy of Trek Chapel Hill.  We will select one winner after each 50 racers that register for the race.  REGISTER EARLY FOR MORE CHANCES TO WIN.  After 50 racers register for the race, we will select a winner from those 50 racers.  After 100 racers register, we will select another winner from those 100 racers.  Repeat when we hit 150 and 200 racers.  You can only win one helmet.  Helmets must be picked up at the race.  If you need a different size helmet, swap out at the Trek Chapel Hill store.  Winners will be randomly drawn and videos of the drawings will be posted on the Roadless Races Facebook page.
