Organiser's Description

Champion is both a noun and a verb. This event is meant for those who want to share their love of unpaved bicycle riding adventures.
Primo gravel not far from home for those in DFW/Waco/Austin. Likely worth the stretch even for those a bit further out. Marked routes with after ride food and drink for all. Free for Club Spinistry members. Group camping spots are limited so signup early!
Staging from Lofers Bend West Day Use area along the shores of Lake Whitney. Lots of camping nearby but reserve a spot early if that is your plan. Routes from 27 to 100 miles. 100 milers will start as an early group with all other distances starting together a bit later.
Distance options of 27, 44, 53, 62, 85 and 110 miles (pending route verification). Awards will be based on registrations one week prior to event date. Minimum awards of Top 3 Overall Top Female. Additional age/gender awards may be added based on signups.
Racing is considered self supported except for the neutral water tables available to all. No handups or on course support allowed. Riders are expected to adhere to the Texas Traffic Code. Riders will need to make their own transportation arrangements if unable to complete the course for any reason. We will NOT be able to provide SAG support.200 mile bikepacking option includes Friday and Saturday night camping based on 100ish miles per day.
IMPORTANT IMPORTANT IMPORTANT info for racers at Spinistry events!!!
Thanks to our friend Dylan Johnson doing the math it is now a REQUIREMENT that all competitors properly mount their number plates or be subject to a time penalty.
Proper mounting is on the bar or cables, facing forward with the numbers clearly visible. No wrapping on the head tube, no sticking in a pocket or bag, no mounting sideways on frame or fork.
Time penalty for an improperly mounted number plate is the greater of 5 minutes per 100 miles (5 minute minimum for shorter distances) or however long it takes us to chase down and identify a racer with an incorrectly mounted number.
We will continue to allow comfort/aero/gravel bars for all racers since that is an aero benefit available to all that more than offsets the number plate penalty.
 
Entry fee covers a trial membership to Club Spinistry for those who are not current members. Fee can be applied towards a full membership within 7 days of the completion of this event.
More details soon.
