Looking for a distraction from hours of monotony on the indoor trainer? Or, riding Dirty Kanza 200 for the first time in 2020? This video comes to you from the cameras of yours truly during my initial foray into Dirty Kanza 200, the 2016 edition. This is a RAW edit.
RAW edit? There is no music during the 90+ minutes of raw Dirty Kanza 200 in this video. Feel free to turn the volume down and play your own music, optionally whilst you ride your indoor trainer, or run the video as a background to impress your friends! 🙂
This video is from the GoPro Hero 3 era of cameras, which were recorded in 1080p without any stabilization… because stabilization wasn’t a thing just a couple of years ago. Because I run all of my GoPro cameras inside a protective case, they often rattle around inside, particularly on gravelly roads.
The 2016 Dirty Kanza 200 Bike
- 2016 Parlee Chebacco with Shimano Ultegra Di2, (my first ever bike review!)
- Tyres, Panaracer GK SK in 700c x 40mm (measured 43mm)
Two things are apparent from this video. Bike technology has changed; bikes with cantilever brakes can be seen, and the early miles had less hustle and bustle, particularly during the early miles (until the muddy sector was encountered).
If these uncut, raw footage videos continue to be well received, I will produce more in the future. For example, uncut 2017 Crusher in the Tushar, uncut 2019 SBT GRVL, uncut ride videos from Australia, Italy and a lot more!
Thanks for watching!

Great footage! As noted, quite a few canti/V-brake setups in 2016, especially on such a wet course.
Speaking of which, my KICKR fails miserably when confronted with water. 😉
+1 for more uncut video!
Thinking I will post the 2019 SBT GRVL next in 4k!
Woohoo; I’ve officially made it in life… now that my posterior is permanently featured in a place of honor on Gravel Cyclist’s landing page; I can retire… oh wait, I don’t get paid for this crap. Who rides 200 miles of gravel for fun??? Bunch of masochists… oh wait!
Thanks for the trip down memory lane JOM… I think you definitely have a market for these raw videos. I’d much rather ride my rollers watching this footage than the video games of Zwift or other virtual nonsense.
You caught me before the hellish descent into 7 flats, 3 spare tubes, multiple CO2 cartridges, and some repetitions of pumping after hitting an exposed culvert that year. Note how my teammate Watts just pedals right through the mud and muck with his elitist singlespeed, just thumbing the nose at all the geared riders… Hehe. Oh wait… I’ll be trying that nonsense this year… crap, hope to see you out there again JOM.
