Grit Nine-O Gravel Race

May 24 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


After participating in gravel races all over the country it was clear to me that I was fortunate enough for my own backyard to be one of the best gravel playgrounds I had ridden. I want to invite you to my playground. The Grit Nine-0 (May 24) and the Gravel Nation 100 (June 20). No sharp flint rock but rolling hills in every direction. The Grit Nine-0 is a great DK tune up. New to gravel. YES…. Good to one to start. Want to compete….YES. This is a great test. REAL CASH and trophies.

This will feel like most other grassroots events. Was very important to consider rider safety as I designed course. The finish is uphill. Most of the course right hand turns. Sheriff to block traffic for us in Larkspur. Does not cross a single busy road. Almost entirely gravel! I also wanted to make sure the riders felt like they got something back. There will be a legit bunch of prizes. A “B” race for those that don’t want to try and beat the “A” group with its own prizes. A great cash purse with equal pay for the ladies. Limited edition truckers hat for all finishers. Chip timing. Swag bag, Music, food, beer, and a great post ride party. A junior race. A feed zone all can participate in. All hosted on a large horse ranch just a few miles north of Monument. Your host – Jon Harp- Director, Rodeo Labs Pro Gravel Team

  1. Hello,

    I’m sure you are getting asked this question a bunch..Are you still planning to go ahead with the Grit Nine O on May 24th, or is a reschedule in the
    Making..Only asking due to hotel cancellation policies…
