WHAT IS GRINDURO!?

GRINDURO! was held in Quincy, CA on October 15, 2015

The Grinduro is one long loop of pavement, dirt and singletrack, where finishing times aren’t based on overall loop time. Instead, you’ll be timed only on four segments that were designed to reward the most well rounded of rouleurs:
• Segment One is a wide-open, practice-your-tuck, high-speed, non-technical affair.
• Segment Two is a flat-out, five kilometer time trial on flat-to-rolling blacktop.
• Segment Three is one mile of leg-searing, punchy climbing.
• Segment Four is a section of the twisty, singletrack descent back into Quincy.

The course is a serious affair (8,000-feet of climbing in 60 miles of our favorite roads in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains), but the Grinduro isn’t meant to be a sufferfest. You’ll ride with friends, enjoy the rest stops, take in the views, and then give it all you’ve got during the timed segments. The course features a mix of surfaces (smooth pavement, gravel and hard-packed dirt) with two main climbs, one long valley and two world-class descents. One descent includes a fast and flowy singletrack trail. The other descent trends downhill for 30 miles!
