Savage CX 2017

Sorry to say, Savage CX has been cancelled for 2017.

BMR has enjoyed providing this and other events to you. We hope to see you out on the gravel and in the woods.


Savage CX is held in one of the few designated Wilderness areas in North Carolina, it is wild and scenic. Often called the Grand Canyon of North Carolina you will be in for a treat as you circumnavigate the gorge and push yourself to the base of Table Rock Mountain. There will be at least 2 rest stops along the route and a wonderful meal at the end.
