Water Valley, Alberta, Canada
 

Ghost of the Gravel is back for its fourth year as Alberta’s premier gravel race, on our classic love it and hate it course in Water Valley. 

New for 2018, we are going big! Cannondale has joined our event as a major supporter and will be providing some seriously sweet suprises (still to come).
We also have on-site camping availible.

Still here, and bigger than last year will be more cash and merchandise prizes, more rider support, and still the ‘Friendly Ghost’ category offerning the same
support and adventure for those dipping their toe into gravel riding and rcing. The Friendly Ghost features a 78km out-and back to one of the most scenic
summits of the area, while still offering a challenging ride.

The Full Ghost is still on tap for those Scary Men & Women (those who have done it, know) and features 118km of awesomeness.
All rides still get a full-service BBQ party after the race, and Red Bull bringing the party to the Wings Zone and start/finish zone and Feed Zone #1!
Ghost of the Gravel is still the only race & fondo that takes you to new places on some of the best roads our province has to offer.

The Venue
