    Default Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K/200K

    june16bigprairie.jpg
    Time to break out your boogie shoes as the Funk Bottoms Gravel is on the move again. The 8th edition of the Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K\200K race will be 8:00 am on June 16, 2018 at the Lake Park in Big Prairie, OH. The new start location will have a much larger pavilion, plenty of parking for everyone.

    Funk Bottoms Gravel will once again challenge cyclists to Ohioís Toughest Gravel Grinder. Two races, one brutal course! A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders through some of Ohio's most scenic roads. On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,000 feet of vertical climbing! Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, gravel, and dirt roads. The Funk 100K\200K is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. Our good friends at Hammer Nutrition will once again be providing support with Hammer HEED before the race, and at the secret checkpoint. As usual the course will have sections from the previous yearís races along with some new sections. This is a cue sheet race. The roads are open to normal traffic in the area. Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV's, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, itís Funk time!

    The winners of each category will receive a custom trophy, along with a case of Yuengling beer and Kenda Tires.

    Any racer doing the 200K in under 12 hours will receive the coveted Cook'em Kwick Hobo Stove.

    The 2018 Funk Bottoms Gravel 100K\200K will start at 8:00 am at The Lake Memorial Park 13367 County Road 100, Big Prairie, OH .

    Funk Bottoms is a cue sheet race there will be course markings. You will go through small town around mile 20 and 50 that have stores where you can resupply. There will also be a secret checkpoint along the route that will be stock with Hammer Nutrition HEED and Gels.
