Cherohala Crossing Gravel Ride Report

Dirty 30 XXC Race Report
The Cysco machine was ready, but was I? Having felt some fitness gains during the Skyway Epic, I decided I needed to get back on my single speed and test my legs.  With Marathon Nationals only 3 weeks away, I needed at least one race on my Cysco SS before t...
