2021 East Texas Showdown

Recommended Posts

I just posted this in the gravel thread, forgetting that there was a Races/Events section. 

Gravel compatible event -- free, grassroots: 

Oct. 1, 2021    2021 EAST TEXAS SHOWDOWN

"This route takes you through two large swatches of public land, the Sam Houston National Forest and The Davy Crockett National Forest. Roads are all publicly maintained mostly County or Park roads that are either paved or gravel. There’s one section that may be hike a bike if it rains too much, but other than that, expect it to be 100% rideable.

The main route is 388 miles, 12,710 ft. elevation, 50% gravel, 50% pavement as it currently sits, but could change some before race day. There is also a shorter 290-mile SLOWdown route option for those looking to slow things down and pet all the friendly doggies.

This race will follow the rules and ethos of other ultra endurance self supported races like the Tour Divide."
