In today’s posting, please enjoy event video from the 2014 edition of the Gold Rush Gravel Grinder, in beautiful Spearfish, South Dakota.
Unfortunately, I hadn’t created Gravel Cyclist at the time of this race, but regardless, it is a fantastic event, organized by a very enthusiastic and friendly promoter, Perry Jewett. I had a fab time during the race, and made some new friends; Matt Gersib of Lincoln, Nebraska and Craig Doell of Canada. Vacation time willing in 2015, I hope to return and improve my performance in this 110 mile gravel grinder.

For the techie inclined, I raced a Ritchey Breakaway Steel CX bike at this event, which was handy during the flight from Florida to SoDak. You can see more of my bike from the race at this link.
