The Panaracer Texas Chainring Massacre is a full on gravel grinder featuring a unique combination of dirt roads and desolate country roads that promises to be both scenic and challenging. Riders will be able to enjoy a fantastic route that starts and ends in the “civilized” part of the D/FW Metroplex near Valley View, TX while meandering through some scenic rural areas.
100K Dash For the Cash – This marked course ride will provide neutral aid/support station at approximately the half way point but no outside support is allowed except at the aid station. Plan to bring enough food and supplies to be self supported in case of break down since it might take several hours for a sweep/sag vehicle to reach stranded riders. 9am start time in Valley View, TX.
All roads whether paved or unpaved are public roads subject to the regulations of the great State of Texas. Participants are required to obey all “rules of the road” and laws for the applicable jurisdiction(s) in which they operate their bicycles and/or other vehicles. This applies to both the featured event as well as any practice or warm up events. The Texas Chainring Massacre is an all-weather event unless conditions are deemed unsafe for riders so there is a no refunds policy.

The 4th Annual Iceman’s Challenge Gravel Road Race and Adventure Pursuit is a fun, laid back gravel adventure event held at the historic Talbert Ranch in China Spring, Texas. The Iceman’s Challenge is a race and adventure ride organized to give gravel riders an opportunity to ride of some of the remote and most beautiful country roads in McLennan and Bosque Counties. This year we offer an 86 Mile Ultra Gravel Road Race and Adventure Pursuit Ride and courses of 86, 68, 54, and 36 miles. The event takes place on Saturday, December 2, 2017, near Waco, Texas, with all courses located in McLennan and Bosque Counties. The Iceman’s Challenge offers routes along beautiful gravel roads, some shaded by trees and on sunlit country roads taking you through farm and ranch lands meandering by rivers and crossing creeks, and streams. The four courses offered will feature roads with varying surface conditions from compacted gravel, small cinder-like sand, smooth dirt, rocky to smooth water crossings, rutted wash outs, chip seal and smooth asphalt pavement. For 2017, the 86 mile and 68 mile courses will offer a new section called the Angel’s Lair featuring four challenging climbs and descents with some spectacular views from the highest elevations in Bosque County. Course routes average between 90-75% gravel roads with 20-25% paved roads.
