VIDEO: The King and Queen of Dirty Kanza Crowned on Cannondales

Ted King and Kaitie Keough powered their way to resounding wins picking up the coveted belt buckles, after a grueling 206 mile adventure across Kansas

Let face it, Dirty Kanza 200 is not an event for entry-level cyclists. Riders are totally on their own for 200 miles with gravel roads stretching as far as the eye can see across farmland, and not much shelter either. With the time frame given to complete the event, ridres don't have the option of sleep, nor much rest. 

For this year's Queen of Kansas, Kaitie Keough, this race was a new challenge. For the King of Kansas, Ted King, he tasted victory two years ago, with a stroke of bad luck last year.

Both Kaitie and Ted powered their way to resounding wins on aboard similarly equipped Cannondale SuperX bikes.

This year saw Pro riders Sven Nys and Jens Voigt tackle their first Dirty Kanza 200 too.

On-road. Off-road. Any road. From the wild, all-terrain capabilities of the Slate through the specially-equipped models of the SE collection, Cannondale's All Road and Gravel  bike lineup is built to move riders beyond the paved and predictable.#
