Gravel Grovel featured some cold weather and about 100 hardy souls who took to the hilly course laid out for them. Results are listed here. Photos from the event can be seen here.
The Gravel Grovel takes place in southern Indiana in some pretty stout hill country in the Hoosier National Forest. If you want to check on further news for a possible 2011 event, stay tuned here or keep an eye on their site here.

The 2011 Calendar Is Under Construction!
But I need your help! First, check directly under the Gravel Grinder News header to find the link to the Calendar Page. This will take you to the new page where I am currently adding dates and eventually links to event sites where more info can be gained.
The format is being kept simple. The event name, state where it is being held, and date are all I am listing. These are being listed under each month heading in chronological order.
But as I said, I need your help out there folks. I need information to post up. Hit me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your announcements, links, or other intel about upcoming 2011 gravel road based rides, competitions, and series.
Thanks to all of you who have helped me out in 2010 and have encouraged me to carry on and refine this site.
The links to events as they currently appear will be taken down in December and then the calendar page will be the resource for your checking out the 2011 dates.

Additionally, if you have any dates to add for 2011, please e-mail me here: email@example.com, and I will get the list updated so everyone can make plans over the long, cold winter for gravelly goodness in '11!
I also will be looking at updating to a proper calendar type format, or at least to get these events organized into chronological order for ease of looking things up. Stay tuned during the cold months of winter for more!

This is a 100 mile event and will be a slightly different course than last year, at least that is the latest. Want to keep up with all the forthcoming details like registration? Keep an eye peeled here. We hope to get further updates posted as the information becomes available as well.

Chief among those announcements is that registration will take place in mid-January. Keep in mind that the DK 200 registration filled up in 14 hours after it opened last winter, so if you want to hop on board the gravel train in Kansas next June, best stay on top of the updates on their site: http://www.dirtykanza200.com Check out the full text of the latest update here.
Trans Iowa is also about to kick off its annual registration circus which you can get the details on here.
Trans Iowa V7 will take place April 23rd-24th, 2011 and will be set to start in Grinnell, Iowa once again for next year. Stay tuned for more updates on these two "grand daddies" of the gravel scene here on Gravel Grinder News
