We are a fast paced gravel cycling series. Held on the gravel back roads around Wichita, KS. Short course and fast paced. Think of us as the crit racing of the gravel world.
Started in 2002 the series consists of 3 draft legal circuits and 1 non-draft legal time trial. All races take place in the fall and start at noon.
This is one of the longest running gravel race series in the country. Started by the Bicycle X-Change crew in 2002 as a unique way to challenge road and off road racers alike.
The BRG series has 4 different and unique races. Each race is set on a course with its own unique challenges. There is a technical course. There is a hilly course. There is our time trial course. Of course there is one loop that has it all. We offer the following categories military and 1st responders category, along with A&B men and women's category's, single speed, mens and women's masters, mens grand masters. The "A" category is for the racer that wants the full Big Ring experience in the most competitive environment. The "B" category is for the racer that is still competitive but doesn't have the power or skill to mix it up in the full "A" race. The single speed is for those that think a selection of gearing makes it to easy. The masters class is for men and women aged 50+. The grand masters is for men 60+. The military and 1st responders will give those men and women that put their life on the line for all of us a chance for bragging rights of who's the best. Awards will be distributed to the top 3 in each of the following categories. Men's/Women's A & B, Single speed, men's/women's masters class, mens grand masters, and military & 1st responders.
The courses are set on true Kansas gravel roads. They range from concrete smooth to bone jarring chunky and can vary from year to year depending on maintenance and weather. Most of the courses are on main roads but they can still become muddy if it rains. The race will go on even in rain, snow, sleet, and sun. Please plan your clothing appropriately.
There are no bike regulations and it's a run what you bring race. Most racers will be riding some kind of gravel bike. Durable gravel tires are highly recommended. All courses are open and could have traffic on them. It is your responsibility to obey all traffic laws and be safe. All of the courses are remote locations and do not have bathroom services. Please plan accordingly.
