(Pisgah Forest, NC – March 16, 2016) CTS, a leader in the professional endurance coaching industry, today announced the opening of a new training center in Pisgah Forest, North Carolina. The new location offers athletes of all levels the opportunity to work with professional coaches, access to incredible training roads and trails, physiology testing and 3D bike fits, a dedicated recovery zone, and guided mountain bike rides in the surrounding Pisgah National Forest.

“For 10 years CTS has operated a training center in Brevard, North Carolina. Each year we strive to push the staff to help create the best environment for all our athletes to visit and train in,” said Colin Izzard, General Manager of CTS Pisgah Forest. “With the opening of our new training center in Pisgah Forest we will have facilities to match the world-class roads and trails that surround us!  From the time an athlete arrives they can train, clean up, and then recover in our Normetec Recovery Zone, all while their coach oversees every aspect.  I can not think of a better setup for any level athlete who is serious about their improvements.”

The CTS Pisgah Forest Grand Opening will be held on March 26th and feature a public road ride from 10am to 12pm along Blue Ridge Parkway with Founder and CEO Chris Carmichael, training center doors open at 12pm with the opportunity to explore the center and meet local pro riders, and a public mountain bike ride in Pisgah National Forest from 2pm to 4pm.
