The trip includes airfare, transportation, meals, gear and lodging at the idyllic Waterfall Cabin at REEB Ranch for the winner and three buddies. The group will get the VIP brewery treatment: with a behind-the-scenes look at OBB's Western North Carolina home including tours, special tastings, live music, bonfires, and an endless supply of fresh-brewed craft beer.
The winner will also receive a custom REEB Cycles bike. "REEBs are one-of-kind, all-American, and welded by the best in the business," said Tim Moore, Chief REEBer. "All of our steel tubing comes from True Temper Sports and small parts from Paragon Machine Works. These bikes are made for the types of terrain we love to ride. It's pretty cool that the winner will be able to ride a REEB on the North Carolina trails they were designed for."
Aaron Baker, OBB marketing guy and cycling junkie, added, "The trails around Brevard are, without question, the best on the east coast. Pisgah offers over 200 miles of singletrack full of gnarly roots and rocks. DuPont complements the ruggedness of Pisgah with flowy trails and some rare eastern slick rock."
Other prizes include specially-branded Smith Optics gear (Forefront helmet and Lowdown and Purist sunglasses); and a fully loaded Eagle's Nest Outfitters hammock setup (Dale's Pale Ale branded Doublenest hammock, Atlas straps, Talon Gear Strap, Twilights, and Echo Bluetooth speaker).
Not only will the winner take epic mountain bike treks through Pisgah & DuPont, but they can choose to participate in (or simply grab a beer and watch) the following races held REEBellion weekend:
Blue Ridge Adventures presents the Oskar Blues Dirt Diggler Gravel Grinder: a 47-mile backcountry tour featuring gravel roads and even a little singletrack.
Cane Creek Cycling Components presents the REEB Ranch dual slalom challenge: a race down the newly built dual slalom course which utilizes red clay from the Red Bull Dreamline course to create an epic downhill experience.
Asheville Cyclocross presents the REEB Ranch Cyclocross:a homegrown race that puts the landscape features of the REEB Ranch to work. Cyclists will race through the barn, charge up steep hills, and try not to get too bogged down in the cow pasture.
"The chance to WIN your very own REEB and shrelp it on the single track around Brevard is a one-of-a-kind experience," said Baker. "Plus, challenge yourself against some of the best riders in Western North Carolina in any one of the three competitions or enjoy a post ride beer during the REEBellion. It's on."
The contest runs on cans of Dale's Pale Ale through July 31st. Enter to win at www.DraftMag.com/REEBellion.
