The Dirty Kanza mission:
The mission of the Dirty Kanza 200 is to provide the ultra-endurance cycling community with a high quality event at an exceptional value. The event will be structured in such a way to be extremely challenging, but at the same time possible to complete. We will strive to effectively utilize the ruggedness and remoteness of the Flint Hills region to properly challenge the self-sufficiency of event participants, while at the same time provide an appropriate level of support, to ensure an enjoyable, life-enriching cycling experience.If you have any questions, comments, or have an idea for an episode, please feel free to contact us anytime.
