MadGravel sends riders on the most epic routes along the eastern Colorado slope. With amazing views of three 14’ers, you’ll get the best vantage point of the entire front range.  Riders will get to challenge themselves on one of three courses as you depart from beautiful Peaceful Valley Boy Scout Ranch south of Kiowa, Colorado. Don’t begin to think this is a flat course. There are serious punchy climbs throughout, but you won’t even notice as you take in the stunning landscape. As one of the first gravel races on the Colorado calendar, you will be glad you participated in this fully supported and ultra-scenic race. When the riding is over, the party begins where refreshments and post-race food await you.

This is the inaugural year of Mad Gravel and we expect it to be one of the most challenging gravel events on the calendar. The three courses are sure to bring you epic roads, punchy climbs, quick descents, wide open spaces, and will take you back to remote and beautiful country in and around Elbert County. Want views of the beautiful Colorado front range, this will do it. The views alone are worth the price of admission.
