June 2nd, 2018 marked the 13th running of Dirty Kanza 200, arguably the world’s most famous gravel race! Despite tough conditions with a thunderstorm delaying the race start by 30 minutes, and a headwind facing riders on the return leg, the course record was broken, by none other than Ted King (he won too).
Meanwhile, in realms of the mid-pack or beyond, JOM and K-Dogg of the Gravel Cyclist crew tackled the event, this video is their perspective. Will JOM make it 3 for 3 at DK200 and will K-Dogg finish his second Dirty Kanza 200? With riders such as Sven Nys and Jens Voigt lining up for this race, you could say Dirty Kanza has grown in popularity!
Audio is best enjoyed with headphones.
