As a reminder, the Gravel Worlds will be on Saturday August 21, 2010. Expect 135 to 150 miles of challenging gravel and MMR (minimum maintenance roads) with a dash of pavement.

The checkpoints will be small town convenience stores. Riders are required to purchase a Nebraska Powerball Lottery ticket at each specified convenience store. Each ticket costs a whopping 1 dollar. Lottery tickets will be collected at the finish line and verified with the time/date stamp. The convenience stores will also allow you to replenish supplies/beverages at intervals of 30 to 40 miles. So you will never be too far from sustenance. Be sure to bring some cash!
