Minnesota is filled with options for riding and racing on gravel roads. If you missed out last year on the new The Filthy 50, you can get in on it this year. Find out all about it below.
From MN Bike Trail Navigator:
After the success and all of the positive feedback that was a part of the inaugural Filthy 50, race organizer Trenton Raygor is bringing it back again this fall. The second annual Filthy 50 will take place on October 12th in Stewartville, MN on some of the best gravel roads in Olmstead and Filmore county.
[quote]”Why unsupported? Why so bare bones? We have participated in many supported rides over the years. Many of those rides were difficult prior to even getting onto our bikes. In the end, we all just want to enjoy ourselves in our own way. Right? We don’t want to fill out a pile of paperwork. That gets to be a little too much like a day at the office. Riders who are looking to race a super fun gravel course are going to be pleased with the gravel, terrain, and potential top speeds. Riders who are looking to crush a colorful fall gravel course are going to be super pleased as well. Personally, we enjoy doing both.” – The Filthy 50 Race organizer Trenton Raygor.[/quote]
