'Get ready to race your mountain bike on some of the best and toughest urban single track the East Coast has to offer. The James River Park trails will give local mountain bikers and visiting riders alike a chance to test their skills. The rock gardens, short steep climbs, creek crossings, fast downhills, and twisty single track are both technically challenging and physically demanding. The hard work and mostly volunteer effort that has gone into maintaining and developing these trails make the Urban Assault a race to remember.'-SportsBackers
