VIDEO: 2018 3G Georgia Gravel Grinduro – Helen, Georgia, USA

Taking place on November 3rd, 2018, the Georgia Gravel Grinduro, aka the 3G, was a new event for 2018, set in the Appalachian mountains of Georgia. When people think of Georgia, they usually associate the state with peaches and Atlanta, a former host to the Olympic games in 1996. But mountains?

Starting and finishing in Helen, Georgia, a town replicating a Bavarian alpine town but in the Appalachian mountains, over 100 riders took on the challenge of the Grinduro (108-miles), the Radical (62-miles) and the Scramble (28-miles).

JOM of the Gravel Cyclist crew attended the event and opted for the Radical, 62-mile version. Sit back and relax as you see the event from JOM’s point of view, front and rear. If you enjoy the colours of Autumn / Fall, you will love this video!

    Great video Skippy but, as you told me last week, I would hate those steep, rocky and scary sections. I’m just sayin’

    Excellent job JOM. Next time use those 650b wheels/tires! ?

      Ironically, I had 650b wheels and tyres ready to go in my accommodations… ugh.

    K-Dogg… hahahaha, you’re burnishing the legend. I remember riding beside you on the Bootlegger 100 course and you (sanely enough, given the super technical descents) self-deprecatingly enough said that you found the downhill bits terrifying.
    But you were doing damned good, terrified or otherwise. Anyone who takes on that stuff gets man points even when they are doing the opposite of swaggering.

    Loved the video. It makes me want to jump in the car and go ride there. However, I think I would bring my XC hardtail for this ride. Unfortunately, I live on the other side of the country.

      An XC hardtail would CRUSH on the climbs and descents!
