La Grind Gravel Stage Race

May 07 - May 08 2022

La Grind is a 2-Day gravel race where participants' time from day 1 and day 2 are added together, giving racers their grand total. 
Day 1: 100 Miles
Day 2: 60 Miles to the Finish Line
A stage race takes strategy, endurance, GRIT, a little insanity, AND legs.
