After documenting the 2017 Dirty Kanza 200 earlier this year, I—Daniel Wakefield Pasley—decided I would race a VERY-NEAR-FUTURE Dirty Kanza 200. Like maybe 2018, 2019.” Eye-witnessing the 2017 Dirty Kanza 200 was exhilarating. I loved everything I saw and heard, I totally and immediately understood the draw. And so yeah, I basically signed-up—mentally, emotionally, psychologically, etc—on the spot. I’ve never participated in a 200-mile gravel race. The implications and ramifications of mentally signing up to do a future DK 200 are still being digested. Meanwhile, I’m already practicing. You say Rapha Prestige, I say Dirty Kanza Dress Rehearsal.
First, I assembled a team of Subject Athletes.
Second, we got Specialized Diverges because #duh.
Third, we did a Dress Rehearsal.
Fourth, I learned some shit?
Fifth, I love Sucks Events, I really do.
