Rocky Knob’s Social Media is now ours!!! For the Spring semester, that is. We are a group of Appalachian State, Recreation Management students, currently taking a Leisure Service Promotions class. We are tasked to promote one event for a leisure service provider, but we are going to just take over, until the end of April!
We will each take responsibility of the following Rocky Knob Social Media sites:
WordPress – Michael Grant, Facebook – Rob Fullbright, Rachel Frank – Instagram, Print and Media – Nate Greener

On April 25 Rocky Knob hosted the kick off race to the Southern Super D series. Eighty-one racers from 9 states competed on the mile and a half course. Not quite a downhill, but also not exactly a cross-country race, the Super D featured a point-to-point timed run with the fastest time winning in 9 categories. Racers tested their mettle over rocky terrain, through berms, and jumps.
We would like to thank all who helped make this event a success:
The Boone Area Cyclists who sponsored the race and provided invaluable volunteers as course marshals.
ASU Recreation Management students who volunteered as course marshals, parking attendants, and BBQ masters.
USA Cycling provided registration and event support. Jim Smalley, USAC Official, provided the professional timing.
Matt Adams promoted the race through his Southern Super D Series.
Boone Meat Center donated the pork. Kansas City Certified BBQ Judge and ASU Recreation Management faculty Roachel Laney smoked the BBQ.
Watauga County EMS provided medical support.
Ingles donated much of the food.
Mountain Khakis donated the awards for the fastest 3 times.
The next race is May 17 at Kolo Bike Park in Asheville.
