Hard to miss this sight at Dirty Kanza. The Chamois Butt’r boys always turn out in force! This train went underway in 2013. And with their numbers growing each year, we’d recommend jumping aboard if you ever see this rolling past you! Continue Reading

More on that later though. This post is about… Continue Reading

Now this is a sight we love seeing at the finish! Husband and wife crossing hand in hand. More times than not the Dirty Kanza 200 is more than just a bike race. We always love hearing stories of riders helping other riders in their time of need, but very rarely is it a loving wife helping get her husband to the finish line! Betsy Shogren always made sure… Continue Reading

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

#decadeofdirty continues! This week’s image brought to you by none other than Jason Boucher….we mean Gnat. Yep, DK can be brutal…and amazing….and life changing! The arm in question belongs to none other than Joe Meiser of team Salsa. One would think a gravel monster such as Joe would have no need for such a message. However, 2010 brought forth a brutal heat that had many a rider hunkered in the… Continue Reading

Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

This photo also comes to you from 2008. A stellar year that saw none other than Kansas cycling great, Cameron Chambers, win the Dirty Kanza 200 with a very long solo attack. What a fine champion if we do say ourselves, yet Mr. Chambers has not returned since to defend his then record setting performance. We wonder if 2015, ‘A Decade of Dirty,’ will be the year that Cameron… Continue Reading
