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 Dirty August

Headed out from Johnston at 7AM on Sunday with Scott Sumpter (LeMond
Poprad), Rick Blackford (Bianchi Axis), and myself (Surly Karate
Monkey) in the group. We met Tom Anderson (Specialized Stumpjumper) on
the way and headed west with no particular route in mind. After
passing by some gas pipelines north of Redfield and brief foray into
adventure racing courtesy of a bridge construction project, we were in
Panora for lunch after about 60 miles. After lunch we stopped briefly
to let Sumpter fix a slow leaking tire. Tom wasn't feeling quite like
himself after lunch so he told us to go ahead to Adel and he'd keep on
at his best pace. Rolled into Adel, snagged some drinks at the Casey's
and after a rest in the shade Tom came around the corner with a
Gatorade in hand and a smile on his face. We rode by Tom's house and
then Scott, Rick and I finished up the ride. 103 miles in total. 7:40
ride time.
