SPYMark your calendars – May 3, 2014 for the inaugural Chino Grinder.  A gravel grinder is part road race, part cross race, part mountain bike race, think of it as a road race on back country roads.  This one in particular will feature a 42 and 106 mile option with a relay option as part of the 106.  This is the first official gravel grinder to hit AZ.  We will have 2 aid stations, and goodies from the presenting sponsor – SPY, as well as bike sponsor Marin, and event sponsors Velocity, Paragon Cycles and a few more.  There is a coupon code for 10% off entries – “epicgravel” till we hit a 4o uses…so use it while you can and tell a friend!  Note, the more that sign up, the more raffle items we will get from our sponsors.  We will raffle as we go – so the sooner you register, the more chances to win.  Get on it.
