Gorge Gravel Grinder

April 24 2022
The Dalles, Oregon, USA

What a year it has been! I hope this email finds all of you safe and healthy. It is time to start planning for 2021 and look forward to putting 2020 behind us. I would like to give all of you updates on each of our three gravel events.

Gorge Gravel Grinder will be run on Sunday, April 11 in The Dalles, Oregon. This will mark the 12th year of the event and we are excited to once again run this classic grinder course through the hills of Eastern Oregon. While Oregon suffered the worst wildfire season in a century this past year, we are fortunate that none of the area around the Gorge Gravel Grinder courses was affected. In order to reduce the risk of COVID-19 this next year we are capping this event at 300 riders which means we will not be accepting any new registrations for 2021 at this time. If you rolled over your entry from 2020 to 2021 you have a guaranteed spot and we look forward to seeing you in April. There is no need to re-register as you are all set. Between now and January we will re-acess pandemic numbers and if we see significant improvement state wide and around the country we will open up more registration spots starting February 1. If you are not currently registered for this event but would like to participate we can add you to our waiting list.  If we have cancelations or limited spots do open up, we will take riders from our waiting list on a first requested, first served basis.
