Hey gravel grinders! This year I am adding a bit of something to the site I am calling "The Daily Grind". It will be posts that make you aware of event details, new event listings, and other gravelly related happenings in the cycling world when they happen.
January is a big month for registrations for 2013 gravel events. The Dirt Bag Dash has opened registration, the Dirty Kanza 200 opens its online registration Saturday January 12th, and the ever popular Almanzo 100 is accepting post card registrations all month this month. Hurry while the gettin' is good!
In the New Events column there have been many new additions to the 2013 Calendar Page here, so check that out. The most recent additions are the events that make up the Iowa Spring Classics Series, a four week series that has been going on in Iowa for years. If you want some great fun and intense training/racing, these events are a must ride.
Recently Twin Six announced a way that you out there can support free gravel racing, and in particular, the aforementioned Almanzo 100, by getting some cool gear that T-6 designed especially for fans of the Almanzo and gravel riding everywhere. See the gear here.
Event Promoters: Keep sending in any info on gravel grinders you may have and I'll report on it here. New event information, registration info, or other pertinent info is always welcomed for The Daily Grind.
