Stage 2 starts with an exclusive treat, riding through the manicured grounds and gardens of the world famous Biltmore Estate. Upon exiting the Biltmore, the route follows the French Broad River and then heads west for a series of punchy rolling hills.
About nine miles after crossing the French Broad River, the 57-mile Compact route turns right on Road 1220 to head toward Leicester.
The Compact and Original routes converge after the Original route descends Doggett Gap. Once riders reach the French Broad River, the next 9 miles follow the path of the river before turning up a very gradual climb to the finish Start/Finish in downtown Asheville.
The stage cols will be available soon
