From the Promoter:
Le Grand represents one of the most amazing gravel courses in the United States. Beginning in Grand Marais, Minnesota’s spectacular harbor, all three events follow the shores of Lake Superior before climbing to their final destinations. With more than 5500 ft of climbing and a checkpoint view overlooking the Pigeon River and Canada, the 100-mile course is the steepest route of the three Heck Production events. The 58-mile course has plenty of climbing and miles of forested roads. The 20-mile route is a Le Grand-worthy introduction to gravel cycling with its mix of paved and gravel roads, climbing and great Lake Superior views.
