How do I register for Mad Gravel?
Just click this link! Remember, this is an unsanctioned race. No USAC license required.
What should my race category be?
Mad Gravel will determine your age to be how old you are on December 31, 2020. If you were born July 31, 2000, your age is 50 on race day.
What if I want to change my race distance?
No problem, please contact us using our contact us form and we will make the change. On the morning of the race day, be sure to let a race official know.
Do I have to use a gravel bike?
You can bring whatever bike you see fit. Mountain, road, tandem fixie, uni.
Will there be aid stations?
Yes, we will have 2 locations with full aid stations. For the Antero and Shavano route, it means you will see Feed Zone 1 twice. So in reality you will have 3 stations on course.
What will be at the aid stations?
Energy bars, energy gels, water, power drink, cookies, PBJ’s, bananas, chips, pretzels, pickels, hugs, and more.
Where is packet pickup?
On Friday evening at 6:00 – 8:00, head over to Soulcraft Brewing to pick up your swag bag. Could be worth getting some liquid carbs at the bar too. Saturday morning, head to Absolute Bikes to grab you shtuff. Visit the registration page for details.
Can someone else pick up my race packet?
Yes, but please provide a copy of registration receipt.
Can I pack stuff ahead to a feed zone?
Yes, we will have vehicles heading out early to the designated feed zones. We will communicate as we get closer as to which vehicle you will put your items in.
What is the refund policy?
We will allow full refunds up to 1 week prior to the race. After that, we will honor a transfer or deferral.
What should I do in the unlikely event I decide to drop out?
Please make your way safely to the next feed zone and a vehicle will bring you back when it is timely for our staff.
Can I change my ride distance midway in the race?
We can’t stop you from doing that, but you won’t get a time for it. Make sure you let us know before the race starts.
What should I do after the race?
That’s easy, head over to Absolute Bikes for post race party food, beer and drink!
What if a bad storm or foul weather moves in?
We will make immediate decisions to postpone the start, shorten the course or make a last minute cancellation if it gets really bad. We hope you can understand we won’t be able to offer refund. Party still happens though!
Are there volunteer opportunities?
Yes, we would love to have you! Please direct all inquiries to Paul Raemer at firstname.lastname@example.org
