Marquette County, Michigan
We invented a new term today: Enhanced Gravel. This is NOT your classic gravel course. This is the Sledge HAMR. A gravel route you can do on a properly equipped cross bike… but you’ll probably wish you had a mountain bike.
We were asked today “will there be support out there or do we need to show up with everything we need”?
Read below from the HAMR First Response Team:
Rule #1: There are no rules. Ok, we took that from Fight Club but it still applies.
Rule #2: Show up prepared, fully prepared, to take care of yourself.
Rule #3: Road Rules Apply.
Rule #4: GPS is required. Without one you will end up lost forever in the UP.
Rule #5: There will be checkpoints. You need to stop at the checkpoints.
Rule #6: You need to be ok with river crossings! There are two.
Rule #7: We will have aid out there at strategic locations. But we’re not your moms. So be prepared.
If you think you can finish under 13-hours Gordon Gearheart will have something nice and shiny waiting for you back at basecamp.
Much more to come. Sign up today at HAMR
