HellKaat Hundie! --A New Bike Epic for Michigan
April 06, 2014
Dudes on the west side have just announced a 100-mile gravel grinder... Down below is what they have so far. (http://mmba.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=122671&p=852471#p847070)
I've long thought that MI needs an Epic. Sure, the Lumberjack 100 is also an epic, but but... it goes 'round and 'round one trail system. A true epic Goes Big. It crosses the state or something. Not to take away from the L100, which sells out every year and is certainly Big. The trails it is on are Big, too. And I'm not even sure that 100 miles quite gets into Epic country. It's close, tho!
We need an event that rivals -- no, surpasses -- epics like the Dirty Kanza 200-mile gravel grinder out west there a ways. It should showcase the glory of Michigan.
OK, here's their scoop:
SAVE THE DATE! APRIL 19 WILL BE THE 1ST EVER EDITION OF WEST MICHIGAN'S FIRST 100 MILE GRAVEL RACE!
THE HELLKAAT HUNDIE WILL OFFER:
50 & 100 MILE ROUTES (THE "HELLKITTEN" & "HELLKAAT")
