Welcome to the third annual Fistful Of Dirt - the wild west of gravel riding right here in Cody, Wyo.  Get your bike tuned up and pull your hat down tight – this ain’t your mama’s gravel bike race.  Saturday, September 3rd will be a wild west gravel grinder of grand proportions.  

Whether you choose to ride The Good (20 Miles), The Bad (60 Miles), or The Ugly (100 Miles), you’re sure to get a hearty mouthful of our Whiskey Gravel – we leave the champagne to the city folk.  From the historic highway into Yellowstone, to exclusive access on the iconic Hoodoo Ranch, to the Peaks of the McCulloughs – The Sheriff of Fistful Of Dirt brings you the very best of the west.  Smooth and chunky gravel, nicely packed dirt, some single track, some rocks, and a little bit of sand thrown in for good measure are what make up The Sheriff’s Whiskey Gravel.  

Once you cross the finish line, the party is on.  Cool your blazing saddle with a bustlin’ post-ride shindig – the band will be hot and the Melvin Brewing beer will be cold.  Enjoy Cody for a weekend full of bikes, brews, music, and attractions.  Whether you ride, or just come for the fun, it’ll be a wild west weekend to remember.

This year's race will be capped at 300 racers - so get in there early!

  2. The Bad

    This 65 mile course is going to challenge you. The first 12.5 miles start mildly as you take off and ride with the “The Good” riders. Once you get past that first aid station, things get more challenging. At mile 14.5, you start a steady climb that ends in a steep, curvey descent – so pick your lines wisely! Around mile 23.5, you join up with “The Ugly” riders for the remainder of the race. For 10 miles, you’ll crawl through Oregon Basin’s Dry Creek Rd – it’s dry, and it’s hot. Keep your momentum up because there will be sand traps. Once you hit the highway, at mile 34, congrats: you’ve survived the Basin! But now the fun begins…these next 20ish miles will push you to your limit climbing than descending. Once you meet back at the highway, it’s smooth sailing back to the finish. Aid Station #1 – Mile 12.5 Aid Station #2 – Mile 24 (Shared with 100) Aid Station #3 – Mile 34 – Bathroom (Shared with 100) Aid Station #4 – Mile 46 (Shared with 100) - **Cut-off is 4:15PM** 82% Gravel For the sake of rider and volunteer safety, we reserve the right to pull any rider off course at any point if it appears that person won’t hit Aid Station #4 by 4:15PM OR finish within the 10 hours. **Hat is NOT guaranteed if you register after 7/25/22

  3. The Ugly

    The Ugly heads west out of Cody where you’ll have a scenic, paved ride up the North Fork Highway onto the Hayden Arch Road taking you up to the Dam Visitor Center parking lot. From here, you’ll turn left heading west towards the Buffalo Bill Reservoir. Once past the reservoir, the gravel begins as you turn south onto County Road 6KV and then east onto Stagecoach Rd where you’ll enjoy some well-maintained gravel. Around mile 25, you hit pavement again as you navigate the South Fork of the Shoshone to County Rd 6NQ. The next 22 miles or so are courtesy of the Hoodoo Ranch – private rolling hills on well-used gravel roads that are rocky and bumpy in spots. At mile 35.5 stop and take a drink from the freshest spring water you’ll ever taste. Pro-tip: drink from the pipe and not the stock tank. (Since this section is private, we have race day permission only. Pre-riding of this section is strictly prohibited.) Once you hit the highway around mile 49, the next 15 miles are mostly well maintained gravel with a little dirt two-track that’s generally well packed. Around mile 63, you join up with “The Bad” riders for the remainder of the race. For the next 10 miles, you’ll crawl through Oregon Basin’s Dry Creek Rd – it’s dry, and it’s hot. Keep your momentum up because there will be sand traps. Because of this section, we recommend using the widest tires your gravel bike can accommodate. Once you hit the highway, at mile 72, congrats: you’ve survived the OB! But now the fun begins…these next 20ish miles will push you to your limit climbing then descending – but enjoy the views, they’re freakin’ worth it. Once you meet back at the highway, it’s smooth sailing back to the finish.
