Kantdu Kanza 2018

Kantdu Kanza

There’s a party going on right here! Staggered start times so that everyone finishes around the same time.

We know how to keep things kool in the heat of summer! Bring your lights and ride the night.

200 Miles: 7am Start
100 Miles: 7am Start
100K Open/100K Non competitive: 8:30am Start
50K: 8:30am Start

The course is marked but this should still be considered a self supported event without SAG vehicles. GPS backup is highly suggested. A mix of neutral water tables and amenities on route will allow for fluid reload at least every 50 miles. Riders can receive support within the city limits of any town along the route but will be disqualified if they receive on course support beyond other riders outside of those city limits.

BBQ and cold drinks will be waiting for everyone at the end. Spots are limited to 300 so don’t miss out. More updates soon.

Panaracer Texas Chainring Massacre

The 10th Anniversary Edition of the Panaracer Texas Chainring Massacre is going to kick off the national gravel schedule in style!

Much like Nascar’s Daytona 500 kicking off the season with the Big Show, we’re kicking off 2020 with gravel’s Big Show and crowning the 2020 Panaracer Gravel King and Gravel Queen based on the 100K winners of this race. Bring your A game early in the season and you could be recognized as gravel royalty throughout the lands for all of 2020. Age breaks for Age based awards will be determined based on registrations. We shoot for same sized fields in each Age group. Age groups will be defined no later than 7 days prior to the event.

We are adding a dedicated MTB race this year. Please note that no drop bars or aero bars are allowed if racing in this group. Drop bar/aero bar MTB’s are welcome in the Open 100K race category. We will also have recognition for Top SS and Top Fat Bike in the MTB race as well as top SS in the Open Category.

Spots are limited and are discounted for early registration. Register as early as possible for the best price. Special Early Bird Pricing will be open only to Club Spinistry members through 11/10/19. After that all remaining spots will be open to the general public as well.

This is both a ride and a race so there’s no reason to feel left out if your idea of a good time on the bike doesn’t include banging bars at the front of the pack. This ride is definitely built for those who like to stop and smell the roses and soak in the adventure. The world famous after party that takes over the Valley View Town Square just can’t be missed.
