2021 Dusty Donkey Gravel Series Stage 2
Are you ready for the pain? Stage 2 will certainly bring it. Let's go climbing!
Again, the series will run through RWGPS. If you don’t have a RWGPS account, please create one (for free - click here) so you can participate. The leaderboard is dedicated to only those who RSVP for each stage. Ok, the details/rules you’ve all been waiting for:
Stage 2: 05/22 - 05/29
Always #1. HAVE FUN. This series is the exact opposite of anything official or serious
Everyone will have 1 full week to ride the route. Ride it as many times as you like. Only your best time will appear on the leaderboard (leaderboard will be live during the stage week)
STAY ON ROUTE. Last year, everyone emailed their ride link afterwards. We've graduated from that. If you go off route, you will not appear on the leaderboard
**IMPORTANT DETAIL** If you go off route and do not appear on the leaderboard after you ride the stage, go ride the stage again. YOU MUST BE ON THE LEADERBOARD TO BE CONSIDERED FOR POSSIBLE PRIZES/OVERALL GC
Obey all traffic/trail/bike path/laws as you are solely responsible for yourself. In no way are the GRVL DNKYS responsible for you. Ride at your own risk
Sign up for RWGPS if you don’t have an account (it’s free). Your ride needs to be uploaded in order for you to appear on the leaderboard
Once you RSVP for the event, it will appear in purple on your RWGPS calendar. Route/Leaderboard details can be found by clicking the event on your RWGPS calendar
Be nice. Have fun. Smile a lot. You’re riding your bike!
**IMPORTANT DETAIL** You must be in our FB Group or be a member of our RWGPS Club to be considered for prizes/GC

Also joining us for Stage 2 is the team at Ned Gravel. 2021 will mark the first edition of the gravel race being held in Nederland, CO. For all riders who participate in Stage 2, and are either in the GRVL DNKYS FB Group or the RWGPS Club, a raffle will be held and a free entry (or reimbursement if you've already registered) to the race will be offered to a male and female! Ned Gravel is scheduled to be held on July 31st, 2021.
More information on Ned Gravel and the race in July:
