The DAMn - Day Across Minnesota

Notices
Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

From Facebook post:

THE DOUBLE DAMN

Registration for the last Day Across Minnesota opens next Saturday, January 2nd! When it does, racers will have the option to register for the 240 or an arguably more challenging gravel adventure.

“The Double DAMn” is a 480 mile gravel road leg shredder and mind bender. It starts at the stroke of midnight in Gary, South Dakota on Saturday, August 14th with our DAMn 240 racers, checks in with us in Hager City, Wisconsin, at the 240 mile mark, and then returns to Gary, South Dakota via a new route with more elevation gain and minimal overlap. Racers will have 48 hours to finish.

If we’re being honest, when all is said and done, you’re gonna be pushing 500 miles as you’re rolling back into our Gary, South Dakota finish line. We once had someone tell us that The Day Across Minnesota wasn’t hard enough. Well, here’s our response. We double DAMn dare you!

-Trenton & Erik

😳 This Toad is planning to ride the '21 DAMn, but the Double DAMn is more than this Toad has to give. OTOH - I'm gearing up to be the fastest fatbike across Minnesota in '21 ... So I got that going for me 😁

That young Chase Wark is something else, isn't he? He came in 4th in the Gravel Worlds this weekend, just a few seconds behind Colin Strickland.

Thank you!

Midtown was well represented out there! I'm friends with a number of Midtown riders, including Sean with his Double DAMn redemption attempt

Chase blows my mind, for others reading this thread, here's a pic of him with his DAMn rig
