Giro Sport Design has partnered with Charge Bikes and SRAM to bring Grinduro back to Quincy, California. On Saturday, October 8, 650 riders will experience Grinduro’s unique blend of bike racing and festival good times.
Registration opens on Sunday, April 17 at 8 PM PST www.GRINDURO.com.
The inaugural Grinduro was voted “Event of the Year” by Enduro Magazine, and this year’s event builds on that success with the addition of a shorter route option and confirmed musical guests La Luz.
Participants will experience two days of fine food, camping, live music, an art and handmade bike show, and a unique style of competition that combines the best elements of a mountain bike enduro and a gravel grinder road race. The primary route includes a 60-mile loop with 8,000 feet of climbing, but overall loop times will not be considered, as race results will only be taken from four timed segments on surfaces that vary from smooth pavement to loose gravel to dirt roads. New for 2016 is a half-distance, non-timed route for riders that want to save some strength for the nighttime festivities. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship.
