Overview

This is the route for the Gold Dust Gravel Grinder, a 70-mile race starting and ending in Spearfish, SD.

Description

The Gold Dust Gravel Grinder is our introductory course into endurance gravel riding. This is sort of a race, as we will be giving away an award to the top three overall mens and womens finishers (regardless of class), but it's more about the fun and challenge of just finishing the race. In the Gold Dust we give you more time to reach each checkpoint, than the more difficult Gold Rush and Mother Lode routes. This route is a challenging 70 mile, single-loop course, with the last 20 miles being primarily downhill! This is a semi-supported race/ride due to limited access to water.

The Gold Dust is our shortest course but don't let it fool you, as there is 4,500+ feet of steady climbing on this course, and it is a challenge no matter your fitness level!.
