Ned Gravel

A fun, inclusive and challenging event

In beautiful Nederland, CO

 

Coming July 31, 2021, we are building what we feel is one of the most challenging gravel races in the world. This was not our original intent — but when we started building the course from our regular rides, we realized there were very few other races that have as much climbing, as many technical sections, and all at an elevation of 8,000-10,300 feet. Our courses pay homage to the hardened miners, dreamers and misfits who came before us as we ride through ghost towns, past mines and up mountains.

We are also building the most inclusive race in the world.

We believe everyone should feel welcomed to participate, regardless of gender, race or sexual identity/orientation. If we are able to offer a prize purse, it will be equal between Men and Women.

We will also be guaranteeing equal number of spots for elite Men and Women on the start line.

Our course is challenging but is not built for professionals only. We believe it would make a great first race for beginners as well.

Ned Gravel core values:

Inclusivity   Diversity   Fun   Challenge   Respect   Safety
