Mississippi Gravel Cup

Mississippi Gravel Cup Round 1

January 11 2020
Oxford, Mississippi, USA

The Mississippi Gravel Cup is committed to getting people off the beaten path and providing them with a challenging cycling experience. Through this series, we are building the culture of gravel cycling and enriching our communities on a local and regional level.

Oxford will play host to the kick-off race for the series this year in a venue that will knock your socks off. The route will stretch into the Holly Springs National Forest.

MS Gravel Cup Series is the brainchild of three guys who love bikes and gravel: Matt Roland, Jason Shearer, and Landon Voller. They have spent the past several years both riding gravel and watching how gravel racing has caught the interest of cycling communities around the country. They began discussing the idea of having a series in their home state so that cyclists who were curious about gravel could experience this fun and challenging type of cycling.

The races are held in three very different parts of the state, so riders can enjoy different terrains for each race. Between the varying grades of gravel and the ever-changing course conditions, these three races provide just about everything you could ask for in a gravel series. Add to that the unique culture and personality that comes with those who love this type of course and format, and you’ll find yourself in the perfect place for an exciting and inspiring ride! Check out each individual race for a rough description of the course and terrain, and then get ready for some gravel grinding fun!
