Bobby eagerly awaits all finishers…and for that warm embrace.
Emporia, KS, and it’s Gravel City community, sent a strong contingent to Stillwater, OK for this year’s LR100. Stillwater has become a kindred spirit in this love affair with gravel. The two cycling communities have become family, sharing in the joy and camaraderie that this passion for adventure cycling brings with it. Like minded individuals, who for many years did not have much to celebrate in regards to cycling adventure. Each now with events that celebrate hardiness, perseverance, determination, and an unbreakable spirit. All qualities shared by their lovers of gravel.
It is with that in mind, that we here at Dirty Kanza Promotions and Gravel City Adventure & Supply Co. felt it necessary to do some bragging on behalf of our wonderful, amazing, just down right stupendous community of cycling family and friends! Emporia sent roughly 20 people into the foray in Stillwater, OK. All bravely took to the start line. And while we commend all that started, we give a special CHAPEAU to those that finished. It took good fortune, grit, and guts to cross that line and be called into an elite class of finishers. 13 Emporia area riders crossed that line of the 20 that started. That is a 65% finish rate for Emporia, compared to 20% of the general population.
