Who said Ohio is flat? The climbing fun will continue for the 7th year. The ever-growing Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohio’s Toughest Gravel Grinder. Two races, one brutal course! A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders through some of Ohio’s most scenic roads. On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, gravel, and dirt roads. The Funk 100K/200K is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. The Preliminary course has been scouted. As usual the course will have sections from the previous year’s races along with some new sections. Racers will go through Glenmont this year early around mile 13 and another town around mile 40. This is a cue sheet race. The course is NOT marked, and the roads are open to normal traffic in the area. Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV’s, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, it’s Funk time!
Winners of each category will receive a handmade trophy and a case of Yuengling beer. Any racer doing the 200K in under 12 hours will receive the coveted Cook’em Kwick Hobo Stove.
