United States Endurance Cycling Association – USECF
The USECF has been sanctioning endurance cycling events since 2016 and our goal is to support the continued growth of endurance cycling at the grass roots level. We provide inexpensive event insurance with no membership or license fees, free race director resources & free consulting for race directors to help them produce successful endurance cycling events.
The USECF will also produce the USECF gravel grinder national championship in 2017 to celebrate off road endurance cyclist’s hard work, dedication and love of grinding. Grinder nationals will provide the opportunity for endurance cyclist to compete against other racers from around the country and will recognize & reward the top competitor’s efforts with national champion jerseys.
Date for the event is June 24, 2017 at Clinton Lake State Park, Lawrence, Kansas.
Grinder Nationals Overview
The United States Endurance Cycling Federation is proud to present the USECF Gravel Grinder National Championship. Racers do not need to qualify and any rider 16 years of age or older may register for the USECF Gravel Grinder National Championship. Racers will push the boundaries of human endurance as they grind for 112 miles and winning will require extreme willpower, skillful riding and possibly a little luck. When the dust settles the winning riders in each category will be crowned as 2017 USECF Gravel Grinder National Champions and presented with USECF National Championship Jerseys. The USECF Gravel Grinder National Championship will be part of the weekend festivities which include a challenging course, great food and a fun & festive award ceremony. The awesome course and time in the saddle with the gravel tribe will make this an epic event to remember. Join us as we celebrate these cyclists’ hard work and love of gravel riding at the USECF Grinder Nationals.
Another goal of the USECF is to bring back the 24 mountain bike national championship which has not been produced since 2014.
