Two unique endurance races run at the same time. The Dirty & The Clean. One adventure / gravel and the other road. A great entre to the culture of China, its history and people! Easy access by flight, train or car!
The Dirty: A 1-day epic mixed-surface and mixed-gradient ride. Some steep sections, 50% nice tarmac, a few off-road trails, lots of narrow and twisting village concrete lanes, a short hike-a-bike. Around 160km, including 4 big hills, 2 short climbs, lots of ups and downs, a few check points, and around 3000m of elevation gain. Gravel or mountain bikes suggested; mountain bike shoes a must. Ranking for each classification, including an overall leader, segment leaders, and other fun prizes. Not for the faint of heart.
The Clean: Enjoy the same experience as the Dirty, but on paved surfaces. 180km with plenty of ups and downs. This ride is easier but still challenging; suitable for mid-level riders and above. Men’s, women’s, and junior classification prizes.
