VIDEO: 2019 Shake N Brake Gravel Grinder – Heflin, Alabama, USA

“The Talladega National Forest contains some of the most scenic and serene gravel in the entire southeast. Starting from the Warden Station Horse Camp, racers travel 45 miles filled with rolling terrain and gently cascading creeks. You can expect 4,380 feet of elevation change. This is one that you don’t want to miss!” –

As the opening quotation alludes to, 4,000+ feet of elevation in just 45 miles / 72kms is nothing to sneeze at.
