Alison Tetrick Sets New Course Record at 2017 Dirty Kanza 200

Alison Tetrick (USA) took her road racing fitness from the Pan Am Championships and Amgen Tour of California and took it to the gravel roads of Kansas at the iconic 206 mile gravel race, the Dirty Kanza

Alison rode a Cannondale Slate, which is a gravel specific bike with the famous Lefty fork offering her 30mm of travel to absorb the rough terrain.  The Dirty Kanza is known as one of the most difficult days on the bike as it tests all factors of endurance and strength.  Alison won the Dirty Kanza 200 to be labeled the Queen of the Kanza in dramatic sprint finish.  On her way to winning the title of Kanza royalty, Alison set the course record by over 30 minutes. 

“The Dirty Kanza is one of my new favorite cycling events” says Alison“It pushed me passed any physical limits I had set previously, and I was able to enter a new frontier of where I could take my bike, body, and mind.  I loved the challenge of the race and had complete faith in my equipment.  It was a pure race against myself, so I am happy with my result because I know I gave it my best effort and I do love being queen for a year.” 

The Dirty Kanza was a great addition to Alison’s race program this year and it was made possible through our sponsors such as Cannondale, Lezyne, Chamois Butt’r, and Speedplay.  Look for Alison back on the road at the USA Pro National Championships.    

The fastest rider overall was Mat Stephens from Dallas, Texas who finished in a time of 10h 49m 8s.
