Gravel Worlds!

The Jersey - Thanks Jay!

The Trophies - Thanks Scott!

Setting up with CVO at 4:30 AM - Thanks buddy!

Riders gathering for the 6 AM start - Official headcount was 96 with 10 to 20 others pirating the Pirate race.

And they're off!

Oasis #1 (thanks again Reinkordt Family) - Rafal and Scott examining Bruce's exposed posterior from a crash earlier in the ride - Ouch! Talk about a gnarly sunburn!

Mike Marchand rollin' in to take the overall win - he crushed it in under 9 hours!

Mark Savery rode great all day and took second overall and first high five and "good job buddy"

Lance Andre of Iowa or Florida rollin' in to take fourth overall

Dale Pinkelman took fifth overall, but won the biggest smile at the finish contest

Coach took sixth overall and also a digger somewhere on the ride. Several others went down too. Carnage!

Folks at the finish trying to find some shade - it was a cooker!

Jeremy Eisenhauer won the Saltiest Rider contest sponsored by Morton Salt

Not sure what's going on here...

DFL! Wills, Butch and Fob! Great job fellas!

A big thanks to the Pirate Cycling League for putting this on! It was definitely worth the drive to Lincoln to participate.

Thanks to everyone who had a hand in putting on Gravel Worlds, especially Corey and CVO, but also including everyone that met early in the year down at Yia Yias and had dreams of what this ride could be. Because it ended up being pretty darn cool...

Thanks again,
MG
