2022-08-27 | Vejle, Denmark Unsupported Grinder 2022

Unsupported Grinder 2022

(For english - see below)

I kølvandet på de største endags løb og monumenter i cykelsporten, er "Unsupported Grinder" sat i verden. Dette løb er vores svar på et vaske ægte Nordisk "ny monument" inden for Gravel cykling.

Er du til grus, små snogedeveje, de rå elementer, lange distance, store vider og den danske natur?

Her dyrker og hylder vi de krævende elementer, der har gjort løb som bl.a. det italienske "Strade Bianche" og det franske "Paris Roubaix" til ikoniske og klassiske events.

Eventyret og de strabadser rytterne går igennem har givet netop disse events en helt særlig status.

Unsupported Grinder er en udfordring der vil give alle deltagere en uforglemmelig oplevelsese. Find din indre ”Grinder” frem og begynd dine forberedelser i allerede dag.

 

Er du klar på en udfordring? 

Kan du holde til at kører 80, 130 eller 300km?

Unsupported Grinder er en fysisk og mental styrkeprøve. Du skal med andre ord selv kunne klare dig igennem dette løb, under følgende forudsætninger: 

Der er ingen service, alle mekaniske defekter skal du selv kunne håndtere, dog må du gerne modtage hjælp fra andre deltagere. Der er ingen mekanisk support i vores depoter KUN hvis du selv medbringer dit eget support crew.

Der er ikke mulighed for opsamling ude på ruten. Du skal selv kunne komme tilbage til start og mål hvis uheldet er ude.

Ruten er en god blanding af grus, stier og asfalt. Ruten er "straight out" anlagt så du primært bliver udfordret på din udholdenhed og ikke din tekniske kunnen. 

Ruterne offentlig gøres ca. 5 dage inden start.

Alle ruter køres som "GPS løb" du skal selv kunne finde vej, der vil kun være enkelte skilte ude på ruten.
