Race 3: Te Akau Gravel Grinder

Your mid-winter motivator!

You asked and we have delivered! The first ever Dynamo Events Winter Fun on Gravel! This is one not to be missed, the sleepy rural community of Te Akau has some of the best gravel roads in the North Island.

A very rural setting for this event and obviously the locals are not use to having cyclist racing around the local roads. Please show respect for the local community.

Race starts with a 7.2km section of sealed road, but that is pretty much it with just another 1.6km of seal over the rest of the course.

Gravel surface is generally good with nice wheel tracks to ride in, but watch for the unexpected pot holes!

There is 672m of climbing with most (555m) of this is in the last 35km of the long course, most is gentle climbing between 4% to 6% . Obviously this means for the short ride you have most of the hills.

Take some care on a couple of the fast downhill sections, or you could end up down the bank with some gravel rash!

Three races are available on the following dates:

  • 11th August 2019 – Tamahere
  • 25th August 2019 – Cambridge
  • 8th September 2019 – Te Akau Gravel Grinder
