Gravel Road Racing - Questions
Just found about this gravel road racing. Considering doing this one event in Two Harbours MN in October. Called
Heck of the North about 110 miles or so.
Looking at videos seems most are riding Cyclocross with odd mt or fatbike
Are Mt bikes allowed? would more less any type of bike be allowed for this type of racing?
Other question is this. Is is true these gravel races are not really marked? you have to guess the course? eg. follow others?
site mentioned about Cue cards?
What should one have for navigation or what is needed?
I have a Garmin 500 edge? would that be enough? or what do people use for this
This is quite new
Also says race is unsupported? is that normal? so more less all food and water have on person whole time, then.
I know i might be answering my own questions but i like to figure out what i might be getting into, perhaps try this newer concept almost.
Would i be handicap using my full suspension mt bike? thanks
