This is a great event and I dig the registration requirement for the Almanzo 100. Check out this video and if it proves anything, you can be sure that 100 miles of gravel is no easy feat.

XXC Interview: Chris Skogen

June 21, 2011

xxcmag.com

Chris Skogen is the man behind the increasingly popular Almanzo 100 and Royal 162 gravel grinder races in Spring Valley, Minnesota. By “man behind” I mean he is the creator/promoter/race director of these races. On top of that Chris is a certified gravel grinding junkie himself. Recently xxcmag.com had the chance to chat via e mail with Chris about gravel, racing, and The Almanzo 100.

These shots, from David Gabrys of Cycleture, were taken during and after this year’s race, a muddy, harsh 100-mile ride where more than 50 percent of the racers dropped out and did not make it to the end. Mud-caked and exhausted, these images give a peek at the toll the Almanzo 100 can take. —Stephen Regenold
