1200 Miles & a Cup O' Dirt & a little Mississippi Mud!

Take the year long challenge of completing a dozen or half a dozen dirty centuries and join the fun in December! Everybody who completes this challenge will be rewarded with a custom hand-made stoneware mug as well as be in a drawing for other prizes. Read the FAQ for details, and welcome to the fun!

I've increased the fun to give some more folks a shot at the cup - a bit 'watered down' - We'll have the 1200 Mile Cup O' Dirt and a 600 Mile Cup O' Mississippi Mud and new in 2008 is the 1/2 Liter O' Dirt - earned by completing 12 metric centuries in the year! A special award will be presented to anyone completing either a dirty century or metric century in each month of the year.

Cups O' The Day - Joe Meiser

This is a pic of Matt Gersib - who blogged about Joe once and rides a bike. Plus, he's sportin' a sweet pair of Oakleys.

Dirty ol' Joe - what's this I hear of you nailing the Cup O' Dirt in 21 days, 10 hours and 34 minutes? Oh, not just the Cup O' Dirt, but the Cup O' Mississippi Mud as well, as you've finished the 2300 mile Tour Divide Race on your #1 rated Salsa Fargo? Impressive! And for that, you've earned yourself a Cup O' Dirt! Congrats and thanks for playing! - Dave

"The GDMBR is the world's longest off-pavement cycling route. It's highlighted by long dirt roads and jeep trails that wend their way through forgotten passes of the Continental Divide. The Route travels through Canadian Provinces of Alberta and British Columbia, and the United States of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico. By Route's end a thru-rider will climb nearly 200,000 feet of vertical (equivalent to summiting Mount Everest from sea-level 7 times)." Visithttp://tourdivide.org/ if you're so inclined.
