8th Edition of Kettle Mettle Dirty Fondo takes place this September

The event is the second round of the most popular gravel series in Western Canada, the Triple Crown of Gravel. The event has also been chosen to join the ranks of the 2023 Gran Fondo World Tour® Series of gravel events worldwide, a total of 5 continents and 16 destinations.

Situated in the stunning Okanagan Valley, the course carves its way through wildflower-blanketed canyons, historic trestles, and shaded decommissioned railway tunnels. You can expect panoramic views of crystal clear lakes as you climb and descend the sweeping switchbacks of the Kettle Valley Rail Trail.

Although the one-day 138+ km Full Fondo Plus distance is the marquee event, they also offer a 50km Medio and 100km Full Fondo distance.

In addition to the One-Day event, there is the Two-Day stage race in the Stunning Okanagan!
