About the Ride:
The Caprock Gravel Grind is a gravel grind consisting of a 50K grind, a 100K grind, and a 100 mile grind beginning and ending in Southland, Texas on the Llano Estacado. Southland is located on 28 miles southeast of Lubbock and 18 miles northwest of Post. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 men’s and women’s finishers in each event.
The ride goes along the scenic caprock escarpment through diverse and challenging terrain. The course is primarily on gravel roads which have very little traffic, and the area is remote. Don’t be surprised to see local wildlife, including deer, wild turkey, porcupines, and the occasional rattlesnake.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 21, 2018 with the 100 mile grind starting at 7:00am, the 100K grind starting at 8:30am, and the 50K grind starting at 9:30 am. Online registration is through BikeReg, and there will be no on-site registration. Registration will close on April 15, 2018 at 11:59pm.
The event will be limited to 200 riders.
Your entry fee will include entry into the event, one meal ticket, Caprock Gravel Grind swag, and Hammer Nutrition goody bag/samples. You will also have the opportunity to pre-order and purchase an event T-shirt on BikeReg through 4/8/18.
You should be prepared to be self-supported on this gravel event; however, there will be a sag sweep of all courses. There will also be checkpoints on the course which will have Hammer Nutrition products available.
We’re very pleased to announce that Hammer Nutrition will be our product sponsor for the 2018 Caprock Gravel Grind.
