Pungo Off Road is a North American Off Road Bike Race. This year's Threemile Crest race, originally scheduled for May of 2021, has been rescheduled to mid-November. Why? It appears that the threat of serious rain in the area of the race route could cancel it altogether. The new date will be held on a Thursday, meaning a full weekend of fun and entertainment for everyone in the family.
The original plan was to have the race held in early May, with the first week being moved to mid-September. But now, the organizers have announced that Pungo will be held again in late September, with the first week moved to mid-October. That leaves ample time to plan for an exciting and fun ride. With inclement weather likely in the area in late September or early October, there is also the chance for unexpected challenges and obstacles along the way. It's been an issue in the past, but not this year.
One of the reasons why Pungo Off Road has been rescheduled is because of the threat of inclement weather. The original plan called for Pungo to be held in early May, but then rain delayed the start of the race, which pushed it back to mid-September. When rain delayed the start of the season, many bikers took off early, avoiding the wet and slippery roads. Now, the weather has been perfect. With the wet and slippery conditions over, many bikers are coming back to the event, many having already saved up their deposit for another trip in late September or early October.
Since the rescheduling was announced, word about Pungo Off Road has spread quickly. Interest in the event has steadily increased, causing prices to raise and creating more demand for tickets. So with another busy weekend in the U.S., is there still room for the off-road series to be successful?
Yes, and no. The first two weekends in September are historically very wet and slippery, and anything could have caused this change, from the weather to unforeseen events. There is a possibility that inclement weather may come during the next two weeks as well, before the final weekend of the month. In addition, it will be interesting to see if the original Pungo Off Road schedule can be rescheduled once again in late October or early November.
If you have already purchased your Pungo tickets, will you be able to attend the event? Yes, all Pungo Tours will be sold out. However, there may be limited access to select areas on the weekends before the event. This is normal for any sporting event, and we've seen how much interest there is in enjoying the fresh air and scenery along the Pungo River, so we're sure you'll enjoy the ride if you can manage to squeeze it in!
