With all the hub bub over our new titanium frames, a few other things have had to play bridesmaid. One of those announcements is that we've stepped up to become the premier sponsor of the Dirty Kanza 200.
Right about now some of you are saying 'Dirty what?'.
The Dirty Kanza is a 200 mile ultra-endurance gravel race in the Flint Hills region of Kansas. It has a tough reputation. No tire is immune to the sharp shale roads. The wind can be brutally oppressive. Last year, only 15 riders out of the 85 starters successfully reached the finish line.
Best of all, the course is a single 200-mile lap starting and finishing in Emporia.
Sounds like a recipe for adventure!
At least a handful of Salsa folks are planning on taking part in the DK this coming June 5th. One of them has gone this distance before on a bike, the rest of us haven't...yet.
What's the furthest you ever rode in one big helping? Tell us about it.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
