Dirty Kanza Promotions is excited to announce that this year Garmin will be joining us as our Title Sponsor. Based out of Olathe, KS, the roads of the Dirty Kanza are in Garmin’s backyard, and Garmin truly believes that the rugged, remote beauty of these roads is the perfect place for an epic challenge using Garmin.
Garmin is committed to the sport of cycling. Dirty Kanza requires good effort management from the rider, and with in-ride alerts for nutrition, hydration and performance condition, Garmin devices can help prevent a rider from hitting the wall. By using Edge devices during Dirty Kanza, riders can rely on their bike computers to navigate the course, see the next turn and know that if they go off course, the Edge will recalculate for them. During the race, riders can share their locations with friends and family as they follow along.
Jim Cummins, Dirty Kanza Executive Director, is excited to have the undisputed leader in their industry on board. “I’m a long time user of Garmin products – their computers have been an integral part of course design from day one. It’s a great partnership – and I love that they are also a Kansas company. I’m also extremely excited about their innovation. The commitment they have to rider safety in designing new products is cutting edge.”
