ABOUT DIRTY KANZA

From the Dirty Kanza website: "Dirty Kanza Promotions was founded in 2006 by Jim Cummins, with the assistance of fellow cycling enthusiast Joel Dyke. At that time, gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community. However, Jim had grown up in the Flint Hills of east central Kansas and had been riding gravel for decades. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events… and convinced the Flint Hills had the best gravel to be found anywhere in the world, Jim and Joel decided to create Dirty Kanza 200.

Initially, these two gravel aficionados had no idea the extent to which this whole gravel grinding thing would grow, nor did they give it any real thought. That wasn’t what motivated them. They both simply felt their lives had been enriched through cycling. And DK200 was their attempt to give back to the cycling community.

Since then, the popularity of gravel grinding has exploded and is now the fastest growing genre in the cycling industry. The popularity of DK200 has grown too, from 34 participants in 2006, to an anticipated 2,200 riders in 2017. And while that growth has brought with it a few changes to our format and the way we have to manage certain aspects of the event, one thing has remained constant… DK200 is a grass-roots event, organized and managed by folks who are passionate about cycling, and done so for the primary purpose of providing life-enriching cycling experiences for our event participants."

Greg Gleason has won Trans Iowa two years in a row. After finishing the 10th annual race in 2014 in 26 hours and 22 minutes and a year of hard work and dedication, Greg was ready to rock at the 2015 Trans Iowa. It was all looking good until the forecast for the race weekend began to change. As the race approached, the gloom and doom sirens rang out among racers and Trans Iowa fans and followers.

It began raining on Friday afternoon and evening off and on. By late Friday night/early Saturday morning, it was pouring rain. A cold soaking rain. The roads were soaked and the forecast for Saturday was cold rain. The rain let up for the start at 4am in downtown Grinnell, Iowa, but soon the relentless wind and rain hit, and the field was decimated. Only one racer made Checkpoint 1 on time and that was Greg Gleason.

Listen in as Greg shares his story about Trans Iowa v11 and how he managed to get to Checkpoint 1 and complete 120 miles in 12 hours and 20 minutes. He shares his story about getting into gravel racing, preparing and racing for Trans Iowa, and gives a lot of other great information and thoughts. This episode is filled with great insight into racing one of the toughest races out there.

The second episode of the Riding Gravel Radio Ranch is one for the ages! Guitar Ted and Ben are joined by Bobby Wintle, who is the owner of District Bicycles in Stillwater, Oklahoma and the director of the very popular Land Run 100. They start off the episode with a recap of what has been happening behind the scenes of Riding Gravel since the announcement of the merger and then get into a lengthy discussion with Bobby about a full range of topics.

Bobby shares the full story of how he and his wife started District Bicycles and why it's not named Bike Love. He tells the tales about the risk he, his wife, and young daughter took on when they left Kansas with minimal money and all of their possessions to start a new life in an unfamiliar city. Bobby is clearly a passionate guy who loves to share his enthusiasm for bikes with anyone willing to join him. His start in cycling was in Emporia, Kansas, the hometown of the Dirty Kanza, and he has combined those early experiences with his passion and enthusiasm to create #UNLEARNPAVEMENT. Bobby shares the story behind #UNLEARNPAVEMENT and gives listeners something to consider.

Guitar Ted and Bobby also share some great insights into the "gravel movement," including where it's been, where it's going, and what the community is all about.

We hope you enjoy and encourage you to share your thoughts and comments with us!
