Dirt, Guts and Donuts II = SUCCESS!

2 October 2010 6 Comments


We would like to apologize to Harpeth Bikesfor leaving them off of the event sponsor list at the event.  Not only did they support Dirt, Guts, and Donuts II, but they also are the providers of our new RfR home!

We had 140 riders who consumed 33 dozen donuts!  Congrats to all of our winners including Brian Gant, the winner of the Surly 1X1 donated by Nashville Bicycle Lounge, and Johnny Crow for having his name added to the coveted Donut Eating Trophy by consuming 33 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts! 


Dirt, Guts, and Donuts II is unlike any other MTB race that you will ever do! This unique race held on October 16,2010 consists of an 11 mile race course on one of Middle Tennessee’s best trails, Lock 4. Along the race route you will encounter 2 irresistible Krispy Kreme Doughnut stands. If you choose to stop and indulge, you will receive a 2 minute time deduction for every donut you consume!   To keep with the uniqueness of the race, riders will notbe classified by age or ability!  They will be classified by weight and/or donut eating ability.  These are the catagories:  


Donut Holes (Kids)    9:00 am

Pre-Race Meeting 9:15

Cake Donuts (Women)  9:30

Powdered Donuts (Single Speed) 9:32

Jelly Donuts (Men up to 165lbs) 9:34

Long Johns (Men 166 lbs-190 lbs) 9:36

Bear Claws (Men 190 lbs >) 9:38

 Awards and Drawing   12:00

 This being our second annual race we anticipate the schwag will be amazing and the fun will even be better!

The entry fee is $25 early registration and $30 day of, but that gets you a one of a kind DGD II shirt and the opportunity to win a ton of schwag!

Each paying participant will be registered to win a Surly 1X1 frameset and free labor to build the bike donated by Nashville Bicycle Lounge!  Additional tickets will be sold for $5 each!!!

Stumbling Towards Greatness Productions will be at Dirt, Guts and Donuts II videoing the events of the day. Thats not it, they are going to sell the videos to participants and the funds will benefit RfR!!!

Plus, the funds raised will help to continue Ride for Reading’s mission of promoting literacy and healthy living through the distribution of books via bicycle to children from low-income areas!





and many more to come…
