As usual, we expect it to be one of the most challenging gravel events on the calendar. Three course options are sure to bring you epic roads, punchy climbs, quick descents, wide open spaces, and will take you back to remote and beautiful country in and around Elbert County. Starting from Peaceful Valley Boy Scout Ranch south of Kiowa, Colorado, riders will be tested, but get to still enjoy the amazing views and high peaks of the Colorado front range. That alone is worth the price of admission! As one of the first gravel races on the Colorado calendar, you will be glad you participated in this fully supported and ultra-scenic race (May 29) and tour (May 30).

MadGravel sends riders on the most epic routes along the eastern Colorado slope. With amazing views of three 14’ers, you’ll get the best vantage point of the entire front range.  Riders will get to challenge themselves on one of three courses as you depart from beautiful Peaceful Valley Boy Scout Ranch south of Kiowa, Colorado. Don’t begin to think this is a flat course. There are serious punchy climbs throughout, but you won’t even notice as you take in the stunning landscape. As one of the first gravel races on the Colorado calendar, you will be glad you participated in this fully supported and ultra-scenic race. When the riding is over, the party begins where refreshments and post-race food await you.
