Salsa made the trip down to Stillwater, Oklahoma this past March for the Land Run 100 – a gravel bike race organized by Bobby and Crystal Wintle of District Bicycles. The morning of the race, the weather did a 180 from the previous days of sunshine, and cold rain and mud put riders to the test. But despite the challenges of navigating the infamous red dirt backroads in those conditions, the warmth and generosity of the cycling community in that town became the stars of the weekend, and we returned home inspired. Salsa Cycles is proud to present, “Red Dirt and Courage,” our recap of a truly amazing event.

I had to live on both coasts a couple of times to realize that maybe being born in the Midwest wasn’t just arbitrary. I’m drawn to the terrain here, and if you catch me with one of this region’s supreme IPAs in hand, I’ll talk your ear off about my favorite spots. I’ll always take every opportunity though to explore every nook and cranny anywhere I can on a bike, because that’s what makes me feel most alive.
