1200 Miles & a Cup O' Dirt & a little Mississippi Mud!

Take the year long challenge of completing a dozen or half a dozen dirty centuries and join the fun in December! Everybody who completes this challenge will be rewarded with a custom hand-made stoneware mug as well as be in a drawing for other prizes. Read the FAQ for details, and welcome to the fun!

I've increased the fun to give some more folks a shot at the cup - a bit 'watered down' - We'll have the 1200 Mile Cup O' Dirt and a 600 Mile Cup O' Mississippi Mud and new in 2008 is the 1/2 Liter O' Dirt - earned by completing 12 metric centuries in the year! A special award will be presented to anyone completing either a dirty century or metric century in each month of the year.

As the promoter and founder of this Cup 'O Dirt idea and challenge... I suppose it would be a good thing for me to actually work to attain said Cup - at least the watered down version of a Cup Of Mississippi Mud! So, at last, my first.

Lake Tahoe, NV/CA - All I'm going to say is this - one of the best slices of singletrack I've ever had the privilage to ride - Powerline, Corral Loop, High Meadows Trail - and - the Rock Garden of Death!

And finally, appropriately, I'll conclude with a little John Muir:

"And after ten years spent in the heart of it,
rejoicing and wondering, bathing in its glorius floods of light,
seeing the sunbursts of morning amoung the icy peaks,
the noonday radiance on the trees and rocks and snow,
the flush of alpenglow,
and a thousand dashing waterfalls, with their marvelous abundance of irised spray,
it still seems to me above all others
the Range of Light."
