Why this event?

An Accessible Haute Route Experience

With shorter distances (55-60 miles) and less elevation gain (3,600-6,000 feet), the Compact route road stages feature quiet, curvy country roads and sweeping vistas, and all the support and services you expect from Haute Route. Compact route riders are timed and can compete on timed sections of the courses, including the Stage 3 time trial.

Vibrant Downtown Location

Experience Southern hospitality in the laid-back yet sophisticated atmosphere of downtown Asheville, NC. A hub for artists, musicians, world-class chefs, and craft brewers, spend your afternoons and evening exploring the small city’s unique sights, sounds, and tastes.

Superior Support Services

At the Haute Route we believe all riders deserve world-class support, no matter how many miles you ride. All riders start together, and after the courses split, Compact course riders continue with timed segments, mechanical support, safety motos, feed stations, and sag vehicles.
