Dirty Kanza Promotions was founded in 2006 by Jim Cummins, with the assistance of fellow cycling enthusiast Joel Dyke. At that time, gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. However, Jim had grown up in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas and had been riding gravel for decades. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events… and convinced the Flint Hills had the best gravel to be found anywhere in the world, Jim and Joel decided to create Dirty Kanza 200.
Participation in Dirty Kanza 200 and Dirty Kanza Half Pint (100 mile) are on a pre-registered basis only. Registration is conducted online and will open on Saturday, January 14, 2017. Registration will close when the pre-established field limits have been reached.
