From the Promoter:
2020 will mark the inaugural Dusty Jerker Gravel Fondo.
What this nearly pancake flat 100km course lacks in elevation will be more than made up in winds (hopefully), dust, and a much higher percentage of actual gravel than most gravel events. We aren’t talking chipseal here folks. Bring your wide tires and be prepared to tiptoe through some loose corners.
But don’t let this scare you away. The course is perfect for first-timer gravel riders all the way up to seasoned Dirty Kanza veterans.
THIS IS NOT A RACE. There will be riders who treat and ride it like a race, and that is fine. We encourage hard and fast, but safe riding. However, the only requirement is to enjoy yourself and have the ability to complete 100km of riding. Top finishers for Men and Women may be awarded a little something, but this is currently TBD.
