Dirt Sweat And Gears

Well it is official, I will not be at the Trans Iowa this year. I will be headed to the South to compete at the Dirt Sweat and Gears race in Tenn. I will be racing the Pro Solo Single Speed event because it sounds like the course is smooth with about 1500 vertical feet of climbing per lap. It was a hard decision, but the race is simply to big to miss. USA cycling has put it on their marathon calender and Jeep is a main sponsor for the event. There is over $10,000 in cash and prizes up for grabs. Tinker and Nat Ross have thrown their hat in the ring so it should make for fun event. One of my new sponsors, Ergon will be there on as well, they are hosting the pre-ride and demo ride on Friday from 3-6pm. If are going to the race please come over to the Ergon tent and introduce yourself. Check out the site at.

This is Grant from the Dirt, Sweat and Gears Team. I'm glad to hear you are coming down to our race. We are expecting a great weekend. Think one part bike festival: with camping, demos, a huge vendor village, live bands, a movie under the stars, etc., and one part 12hr. Race on a challenging course with over $25K in cash and prizes to give away. Good times!

Don't hesitate to contact us with any questions at
