NOTE ON COURSES FOR 2023 

For past years, we have done two days of riding with two distance options for the Ochoco Gravel Grinder but this year we are doing a single day ride with three distance options.  We will have the distances as about 50 miles and 4000 feet for the Small Grinder, about 75 miles and 5000 feet for the Medium Grinder, and about 100 miles and 6000 feet for the Big Grinder. 

 

We do not have the routes locked in yet as most of it is still under snow.  We will get out there toward the end of May and beginning of June when the melt happens and move snow to get our courses determined. 

 

Here are the courses from last year’s event if you’d like to get an idea of what we may do,

SEE PAST RESULTS

We are excited to announce a new e-bike category for this year’s Ochoco Gravel Grinder.  This will be a test event to see how the riders/bikes fare and our support of both bike and rider.  We will have charging stations setup each night that you can recharge your e-bike battery along with your other electronics.  The e-bike category will be limited to 25 riders and spots will be sold on a first come first-served basis.  Riders must ride the small grinder courses.  E-bike riders will be timed but not scored as a race. 

 

It is the mission of Team Breakaway to provide all that- who want to experience this amazing event, have opportunity to do so.
