Cymbl youth mountain biking race

The newly formed Carolina Youth Mountain Bike League (CYMBL) was featured in an Asheville Citizen-Times article this week.

The author interviewed Annie Pharr, Marisa Pharr, and Ben Williams, who have worked with Blue Ridge Adventures to form the league and to organize and produce the race series. The league is the first mountain bike league for youth in the area.

The CYMBL series consists of five mountain bike races in Western North Carolina for boys and girls, grades K to 12.

The first event is scheduled to take place on April 17 at Falling Creek Camp. The races that follow are in May, August, September and October.
