Husky100 – Not quite ready for full-on big-kid britches? It’s cool. The Husky100 is a hard-wearing sumbitch made up of a 60/40 blend that’s sure to fit just right. The Husky100 follows much of the ToughSkin150 route, just a little less miles.
2019 was the inaugural route for the Husky100 – 102-miles total, with 6,300+ feet of climbing and over 50% gravel. You can download our 2019 course here. We’ll be changing this year’s route to include more gravel, more timed-segments, more fun! We’re currently out researching new twists and thrills and will have the course mapped out and finalized in August. We’re going to keep this year’s course a little closer to the belt – shhh… it’s a secret – though we will have plenty of training rides that could?!? include a few sneak peeks leading up to it. Make sure to keep up with us through our blog.
Start/Finish address: Union City City Hall – 5047 Union Street, Union City, GA 30291
We want our Gran Fondo participants to ride the ride the way they want to ride. Fast, slow, medium-fast, lightspeed—we’re here for all of it. If you’re the type to take your time, stop and smell the gravel, and really experience the route’s stunning natural scenery, be our guest. All participants who complete this punishing course will receive the satisfaction of a tough job well done and an exclusive Spin the District embroidered patch. (Good luck finding either one on eBay.) If you want to skip the scenery and go for the gold, we’ll cheer you on. The top three Husky100 riders from each category will receive the patch, an event medal, and free registration for next year’s event. In addition, the first-place finisher from the Time Segment Challenge, regardless of category, for both men and women will also receive a year of fame on our website and social media, and a giant, badass belt. (It won’t fit through your belt loops, but your pants will stay up from sheer intimidation.)
TIME SEGMENT CHALLENGE:
New to 2019 we are offering a Time Segment Challenge for the participants of the road Rayon100 event and the gravel Denim60, Husky100 & Toughskin150 versions. The winner of each Time Segment Challenge will be rewarded a custom, giant badass belt. (Think All-star wrestling big) To win the Time Segment Challenge, you must have the fastest overall accumulative time of the segments provided for each event. See the Race Bible for full details
Calling out the best of the best
Have you had good results this year past year? Come check out the ToughSkin150 or the Husky100—and save some green. If you’ve placed in the top 5 of any Gravel Race, Grinder, or Gravel Gran Fondo that’s 50 miles or more this year, we’re offering you free registration for the first 100 male and 100 female riders into your choice of our two toughest rides. This ain’t our first rodeo, but it is the only the second time wrangling these particular bulls with these particular clowns. (We’re so much better at planning rides than metaphors.) The bottom line, we understand if a seasoned rider like yourself has a few reservations about our new routes. That’s why we’ve decided to minimize your risk by eliminating the entry fee for top racers. Come on, take us up on it—what have you got to lose? Not a top 5 finisher? Don’t worry if you don’t qualify for free registration this year. Put the pedal to the metal in this year’s Toughskin150 to compete for free registration in 2021.
Please see our registration page for complete details.
