Texas Chainring Massacre | The Spinistry

100% Payouts for Open Ultra and Women Endurance

1/11/14 9am Start
705 S. Lee St. Valley View, TX
USA Cycling Permit Pending

The Texas Chainring Massacre is a full on gravel grinder featuring a unique combination of dirt roads and desolate country roads that promises to be both scenic and challenging. Riders will be able to enjoy a fantastic route that starts and ends in the “civilized” part of the D/FW Metroplex near Valley View, TX while meandering through some scenic rural areas.

The route can be run on a road bike (with fat rubber), or a mountain bike but riders shooting for the “win” will most likely utilize CX bikes. If you choose to take a road bike on the course please bring extra tubes because there are potholes and some rough sections of dirt road. The race course will fall under USA Cycling’s designation for Mountain Bike Ultra Endurance over 100 Kilometers (62 miles) and Mountain Bike Endurance. We will also offer a fun ride with a distance of approximately 50 miles.

This marked course ride will provide neutral aid/support station at the 50 mile mark but no outside support is allowed except at the aid station. Plan to bring enough food and supplies to be self supported in case of break down since it might take several hours for a sweep/sag vehicle to reach stranded riders.

9am start time in Valley View, TX.
