The Sancho 200 is the ultimate gravel grinder. By "gravel" we mean gravel, sand, mud, dirt, and pavement too. There is a 200, 100, and 50 mile option. The fastest time on the 200 mile loop wins a Sancho 200 jersey and serious bragging rights. So, if you want it to be a race, it is. If you want it to be a non-competitive ride, it is. Times will be tracked via segments for each loop on Strava, so if you want to compete for a jersey you must have a Strava account and be recording your activity. All riders are allowed 30 minutes of total rest time.

 

 

REGISTRATION

 

Pre-reg is $30 and includes a Sancho 200 t-shirt and BBCo water bottle. Day-of registration is $40, but we strongly prefer that riders pre-reg so we know how much water and food to allocate along the course.

FINISH LINE PARTY

With beverages supplied by

Short's Brewing

 

You heard right.  From 8pm-12am, 200 mile riders will be welcomed home with killer tunes and delicious beer from Short's Brewing.  It will be a good time.  We promise.

 

 

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

 

Designated start times are for those wishing to take advantage of our feed zones. If you are self-supported, you can start the ride whenever you want—just be sure you can finish before midnight, otherwise you're on your own.

 

200 mile riders:

 

You will need:

  • At least 4-6 hours of headlight power.
  • External battery packs for your phone/GPS unless they can last over 15 hours. 
  • Start earlier than the 6:30 start time if you think it will take you more than 20 hours (less than 11mph average).

 

All Riders:

 

Sunrise: 7:48am.  

Sunset: 7:12pm.

 

The course is mostly gravel and sandy two-track but there is some pavement. If you are a beast you will average 13-16mph. If you are an experienced, fit rider you will average around 12-13mph. All others should plan to average 9-11mph.

There are many turns on the route, so use the method you trust most to navigate. We use Wahoo Elemnts, which have great battery life and a good turn-by-turn guidance system.

 

FEED ZONES

Water and food stations will be setup along the 200 and 100 mile routes at around mile 45 (where the routes first deviate) and mile 165 of the 200 loop, but you should still keep yourself stocked on nutrition and water just to be safe.  50 mile riders are self-supported.  If you have anything you'd like taken to the feed zone for you, please have it in bag with your name clearly written on it.   

 

 

 

 

SAFETY

 

This is NOT a closed-course event, which means there can be cars and other vehicles on the route at any time. Riders are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and exercising extreme caution. You are expected to stop at all stop signs.

 

There will be no emergency medical staff on the course. You are responsible for tending to your own injuries. Basic first-aid supplies will be provided at watering stations along the course. 

 

If you can not complete the course, you are responsible for arranging your own rescue.
