The fastest-growing discipline in cycling today is gravel. This new style of riding has introduced more adventurers to cycling with more gravel-specific bikes, gear and events debuting this year than any year prior. 2020 continues to show the undeterred growth, with races across the U.S. scheduled for next year selling out before this calendar year ends.
The Mississippi Gravel Cup (MGC) is a four-race gravel series created by the Ordinary Epics Team in conjunction with race directors in each location. The MGC offers a premier gravel experience with each race in the series, offering 100 and 50-mile competitive distances as well as a 25-mile fun ride. The races are held in four different parts of the state so riders can enjoy different terrains for each race. Between the varying grades of gravel and the ever-changing course conditions, they provide just about anything a rider could ask for in a gravel series. Add to that the unique culture and personality that comes with those who love this type of course and format, and you’ll find yourself in the perfect place for an exciting and inspiring ride!
