The early morning start means the town comes to life with lights on.
With a morning shower riders took cover as they left their bikes in their respective rows.
After a 30 minute rain/thunder delay the clouds started to clear up.

Look for our first person perspective video of the all day event later this week from Jon Hornbeck.
Enve debuted their new Gravel specific “G Series” at the event which a select few rode. Look for our review in an upcoming RBA issue.
Janel Holcomb came back to the event to ride the 100 mile route.
Most riders handle the ride on their own compared to a group which you will normally see at a road event.

The rest stops through out the course are a busy site as riders look for their support crew.
By the afternoon the wet roads turned into dry dust.
If you completed the full DK distance your bike was in need for some much valuable R&R.
With no assistance out on the course extra bags were needed. A camel back and Enve fanny pack were a nice addition.

This about sums up your view for the 200 mile ride.
This rider shows off his way to take food on the go.
There were plenty of water crossings to handle as riders either rode or walked their way through.
Jens Voigt came all the way from Germany to take part in the gravel festivities.
Rebecca Rusch completed her 350 mile DKXL ride with a smile on.
This wraps up what gravel is all about.
