In today’s posting, enjoy some photos of my pre-ride from the 2014 edition of the Gold Rush Gravel Grinder, in beautiful Spearfish, South Dakota. And, one or two of my mega sludged bike post race. And, the race video itself.
Unfortunately, I hadn’t created Gravel Cyclist at the time of this race, but it is a fantastic event, organized by a very enthusiastic and friendly promoter, Perry Jewett. Had a fab time during the race, and made new friends like Matt Gersib and Craig Doell. Vacation time willing in 2015, I hope to return and improve my performance in this 110 mile gravel grinder.yep,

For the techie inclined, I raced a Ritchey Breakaway CX bike at this event, which was handy during the flight from Florida to SoDak. The Breakaway CX will be featured soon on Gravel Cyclist.
