About the Event
Rip through the Badlands during this high-paced gravel grinder and finish with a laid back ride in Montana!
The Badlands Gravel Battle grinds across 120 miles and rolls over 10,500 ft of elevation gain on the fast and rugged red scoria roads that crosshatch Badlands of Western North Dakota.
This is an organized one-day race/ride, it is fully supported, it is 100% gravel and the courses are BEAUTIFUL.
This is not a social ride but more of a competition and challenge ride. This is a ride that you will need to train for, or you will not be able to finish.
