Registration is Now Open for 2015 Dirty 40 Race
Vermont’s best and dirtiest race is back for this September.
In fact, this year’s race is so exciting, Bernie Sanders has decided to detour his presidential campaign, and participate.
Word has it, Sanders is riding in the event, in hopes of getting some dirt on his political rivals.
Meanwhile, Hilary Clinton is trying to get some foreign donors to buy Bill a bike, so he can keep an eye on the presidential hopeful. 🙂
80% Gravel Roads
The Dirty 40 Race travels through Derby, Holland, Morgan, Charleston, Westmore, and Brownington, Vermont. 80% of the course is on some of the most rural scenic backroads you will find in the State of Vermont.
The course is tough, real tough. In fact, we’ve been told it is harder than an Ironman. Climbs as steep as 13% grades and 5600 feet of elevation gain.
We have neutral support on course as well as multiple feedzones and a broomwagon if you are unable to finish.
No license is needed to race. No points assigned. All you need is a bicycle, a helmet, and the will. We have multiple categories including age groups, singlespeed, and tandem.
Our winners do receive bragging rights, a trophy, and a winner’s jersey. And we know how tough this race is, so we even have the Lanterne Rouge award for the last place finisher.
Race or Ride
We are by all means a race. We are timed and have victors. But some race against the clock and others race against their own personal best.
We love that our race attracts all different speeds and riders. We love that bicycles unite.
So even if you aren’t the racing type or even if you are, challenge yourself to race the Dirty 40.
