The fastest 100 miles on gravel is back to kick off the 2023 gravel season in style! Register early for best pricing. Club Spinistry members save 33%! This is Stage 1 of the Spinistry Gravel King/Gravel Queen Championship series.
Staging from the Valley View Town Square conveniently located just north of DFW off of I-35. All participants will receive after ride food and drink thanks to all of our wonderful partners in Valley View and beyond. Register by 12/31 to guarantee your giveaways.
The 100 mile option is a race only and a strict time cutoff will be enforced to make sure all riders are done before dark. All other distances are intended for both fun ride/non competitive types as well as competitors wanting to record the best times. The Beginner distance will have recorded times but no awards or recognition. All distances will be marked and will offer neutral water tables. Aside from the neutral water tables this is considered a self supported event. Any rider who receives assistance from another person or stowed support will have their time and placement negated.
Here are the rules:
Encourage others to have fun
Don't be an azzhole
If you accept assistance from another person you forfeit your time
Anyone can ride with anyone else they can keep up with
No upgrades or transfers allowed. Club Spinistry members may apply signup fees to a future event if unable to attend for any reason. Club members must notify organizers prior to event day if they intend to defer.
For those wondering why the 100 miler has a higher entry fee...the 100 is a cash payout race. Traditionally we've done a pretty decent payout for this one. I've never heard any complaints. The cost difference goes directly into the racers' purse money. It will be at least $4000 and could go higher depending on late signups.
We will Award Top 3 Overall and at least Top Female with cash payouts. Top female will be able to double dip if she is also in the Top 3 Overall. Additional female payouts can be added if female signups justify deeper awards. This edition will also offer payout in the age categories. Top 3 Overall/Top Female(s) are not eligible for age group awards. Age groups will exclude the Overall winners.
All riders agree to adhere to the Texas Transportation during the event. We will only be utilizing public roadways. The route link includes access to navigation via the Ride With GPS app for people who might not have a dedicated navigation device. The course will be marked but riders are expected to be able to self navigate if signage is missed by the riders or potentially disturbed.
Racers must be able to immediately provide verification of route completed upon request via Strava or similar tracking services in case of protest. Failure to provide supporting data upon request will result in forfeiture of results and any awards.
