MS Gravel Cup #4 - Bentonia Burner

This race will start in the historic Blues city of Bentonia, MS in front of the Blue Front Cafe. After a slow rollout across Hwy 49 you will hit gravel heading north towards the oil field cities of Anding and Tinsley. Making your way across bluffs along the eastern edge or Sartaria you will be challenged with punchy climbs and screaming downhills. The 100-mile racers will hit their aid station and head southwest towards Vicksburg on lightly traveled country roads before turning north back to the aid station on a mix of dirt and paved roads. The same aid station will be used by the 50-mile racers and both will race towards the finish on some of the best gravel the area has to offer.

Greenwood Gravel Grind

The Greenwood-Leflore County Chamber of Commerce, host of the annual Bikes, Blues and Bayous event, has partnered with Ordinary Epics to create a new ride – this time on gravel! The 2nd annual Greenwood Gravel Grind (G3) will be held on April 25th, 2020 in Greenwood, MS. This new gravel ride builds on the strengths of the very successful Bikes, Blues & Bayous event, and pairs the gravel roads of the neighboring Carroll County hills with our fast and flat Delta terrain.

G3 will offer two routes – 50K & 100K, but regardless the distance chosen, each participant will enjoy the full experience of Greenwood hospitality and G3 adventure. A well-supported ride, there will be 2 rest stops with food and drink provided by our sponsors and staffed with hospitable volunteers. We’re also pleased to announce the G3 event will benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson’s.

From Heidi & Zander…

”The Spirit World 100 is a down home gravel road expedition that has been in creation for 4 years. We’ve been exploring the outer reaches of our abilities to be spirited entrepreneurs in an attempt to bring something from another universe to the event scene. Our main goal is to connect more people through our contagious love for riding bikes, cooking and throwing a mean party. Now, we just need all you special humans to bring your creative and powerful energy to the desert southwest.

The Spirit World 100 and 50-mile course options are 2 of our most coveted and adored gravel routes in southern Arizona. Each course option is a reflection of the thousands of hours we’ve spent soaring through the San Rafael Valley since 2015. In order to showcase one of the Nations best remote and purely quiet destinations, we have partnered with the Town of Patagonia to invite riders and their families to the high desert. Obsessed with the landscape of the borderlands region, we’ve studied the maps of this area and are working closely with regional government, land management and private entities to make this place more accessible for the entire gravel cycling community. We want to help redefine the future of outdoor recreational tourism in the greater Tucson and borderlands region of The Copper State and The Spirit World 100 will be a key player in this mission.”
