Results

Thanks to all who came out to make the 2017 Dirt Bag another good day for the gravel community.
The previous days rain made the course a little soft and put a twist in the story of these otherwise fast roads. That's gravel though, it's dynamic!

Thank you also for being generous and helping to keep it free. We covered our expenses and still have shirts available.

There is another gravel race in out area on Sunday Gravel West Bike Ride. Check it out.

Here are the results as best as I recorded them:
