What this is.

Born out of a desire to combine the finest gravel road cycling events in the country and the people that ride them, the folks that brought you the Almanzo 100 are proud to present another element to the world of FREE bicycle riding: The Almanzo Gravel Road Series: Race for the Cup.

Taking place on some of the Upper Midwest's finest backroads in some of the areas most remote places, these events are guaranteed to take you to places you've never thought existed.

Cheers...and here's to riding gravel!

  2. I hoped you'd find this Charlie. My best wishes to you and the fellow DBDer's. May your training bring you victory.

  3. Excellent - a whole series. I'll be there for as many as I can. I plan to do everything I can to finish.

  4. I plan to beat Charlie- not a lot of other goals for this. If he DNFs I will settle for winning said race.

  5. what are the chances that AGRS might consider Tour Divide (mother of all gravel grinders) for inclusion as a "substitution event" or extra credit, er somethin', such that cup chasers who miss points due to their participation in/recuperation from said grand tour might get cut some slack?

  6. Due to the timing of the Tour Divide I cannot see how it would interfere with any of the other AGRS events. That said, I will allow anyone wishing to participate in said event to include their completion of into the final AGRS Points Total.

    Let it be known:
    By completing the Tour Divide, any racer competing for a podium finish in the AGRS:Race for the Cup will be automatically awarded 15 points toward their overall total.

  7. Nice Chris. Thanks for considering the upper-upper Midwest. Me thinks your bonus is generous and perhaps it will usher more than one dedicated Cup rider to the grand tour of fat. Though at first glance TD doesn't conflict w/ AGRS, as the Cup draws more chasers from autonomous regions beyond the upper Midwest horizon, representing at Alamanzo, then peaking for Banff three weeks later is/becomes a tall order. As well, even a botched TD recovery can leave a charred soul without hunger for the 'Gents' in September. Such is the ultra predicament! Like gravelle through knobbies, so are the days of our lives. May the AGRS histrionics flourish!

  8. Hi Chris,

    I'm getting the final details nailed down for the inaugural Jackrabbit 100 in Omaha, NE. Any help in getting the word out would be much appreciated. http://rockroadjackrabbit.blogspot.com/
