The 4th Annual Sub-9 Gravel Grovel is just two weeks away!

The Gravel Grovel is the bookend event to the popular Sub-9 Death March ( and we are sure that this year's event is going to be the best one yet! We've recently moved to a whole new venue allowing for more parking, ample camping opportunities and much more. The event begins/ends at the Midwest Trail Ride Horseman's Camp on the western edge of the Hoosier National Forest.

Who will win the coveted custom Brown County stone awards.... will it be a mountain biker? a cyclocrosser or roadie?! You'll have to experience it to find out!
