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.

A few late June and early July additions!

If my math is correct - I'm giving away a couple more Cups this year- This marks our first Full Cup O' Dirt awarded this year to Dennis Grelk - and by July, no less! Impressive - that dude likes to ride! He's half way to a Half Liter O' Dirt too -let's see if he earns that as well! He could have a matching set - one for the office and one for the home!

It looks like Norbert has earned a Cup O' Mississippi Mud - The year is only half empty (or is it half-full - you decide!). Will Norbert continue on to earn a full Cup O' Dirt? Only time will tell!

From Dennis Grelk:

June edition: (he's in the one-a-month club, you know...)
"I wandered around long enough to get a century yesterday. (6/29/08)

The flood waters are receding, but they still have hold of my normal routes so I tried wondering around in Missouri a little. I don't know how those people find their way around, none of the gravel roads are marked! No street signs, no dead end signs, gravel roads pass for driveways, driveways pass for gravel roads. It was a really interesting ride on some really remote roads, but I sure made a lot of little loops.

Pics 009-024 here are from the ride"

July edition:
"Thought while I was trying to get through your spam filter I may as well add another dirty century to the list. Here's my kickoff century for July."

Pete Ylvisaker - seems though he's been recruiting! We'll add Big Al to the list!
"Hey Dave,

I put in 62 miles (almost exactly) with the single speed on Linn County gravel roads July 4... and another 45miles of gravelicious single speed riding this morning. Best riding weather in months. Anyway, chalk me up for another 100k. And if you'd be so kind, add one more rider to the list. Al "Big Al" Schmidt joined me for Friday's 100k."

And from Norbert Koenigsfeld:

"Went for a ride yesterday and it ended up being a century...at mile 89 I crashed but was able to finsh...stupid me for crashing...hit a hole in the road."
