The Michigan Gravel Race Series is a points series composed of 15 uniquely different gravel centric events. Riders may choose to challenge themselves in the Short, Long or Ultra course series in several categories from open, fatbike, singlespeed and tandem. Racers registered for the series will accumulate points at events throughout the season.
Please note that you must register for the series PRIOR to the first event you want scored, and registering after a qualifying event will not be eligible for points! This registration is specifically to be counted for the points series and you will need to register for each individual qualifying event in the proper distance per your category. See event website for full details/rules!
At series end the top riders in each category, and who have also completed in at least 4 events in the series, will be awarded one-of-a-kind trophies and swag. To compete for the coveted gravel trophies and overall podiums a rider must be registered in an age group category. Riders outside the top 3 overall, as well as categories, will be eligible for age-group/category medals which will be awarded to the top 3 in each age group (29-under, 30-49, 50+) and category (SS, fatbike, tandem)
