Gravel Detour 2020
Overcoming Covid-19 Barriers
After racing to hop over a variety of barriers, taking on a few downhills, then some gnarly uphill sections, we’ve decided to go off course and hit some gravel and get back to the “fun” we’re known for here in the Yoop. While we won’t be doing traditional cross this fall season, we will be preparing some fun events for you to overcome your own barriers when it comes to making the commitment to get out and try new things, get some miles on your 29s and connect with others (if you choose) through a safe, socially-distanced, outdoor race or shared experiences on social media.
We’ll be hosting three fun-filled races for you to enjoy with both short and long courses offering an average of 16 to 45 miles. Courses will be released and you will have two glorious weeks to fulfill your mission, should you choose. All events are self-supported and include:
Detour 1: September 26th – October 10th
“Emu Scramble” (let your feathers fly)
Detour 2: October 10th – October 25th
Something equally as fun…to be announced
Detour 3: October 25 – November 7th
Even more fun…to be announced
What is the cost to YOU other than your time and sweat? Nothing. These courses are our gift to you…along with the chance to connect with likeminded folks who don’t grind their axels at barriers, but find a new course, borrow someone’s bike, roll up their bibs and ride.
These events are completely unsupported by us and 100% supported by you. By heading out, you are agreeing to take full responsibility for your safety. To ensure full enjoyment and safety, we provide the following rules:
