Pisgah Stage Race - Stage 1 Full Results and Report

Posted by: Matt Williams |October 9, 2013 1:45 AM
Day 1 of the Pisgah Stage Race is in the books, with Kerry Werner (BMC) and Pua Mata (Sho-Air/Cannondale) taking big wins. Riders were treated to some of the best singletrack Pisgah Forest has to offer today, with riders riding the full length of a local favorite, Squirrel Gap. The stage finished with the highly technical Black Mountain descent. 

Despite some early attacks and antics on the first paved road section, riders eventually settled into a more reasonable pace on the first gravel climb to Turkey Pen Gap. It was there that Werner made the days winning move. Werner rode the rest of the day alone to take the win. Mata also moved to the front early, and eventually came through over 20 minutes up on her nearest competitor.
