May 21st & 22nd, 2016
Welcome to the Mountain State Dirty Double page! The MSDD is a Two Day Gravel Road Stage Race, think of it as, "Hilly Billy Lite". This dirt/gravel road bicycle race takes place, both days, from the scenic mountain town of Rowlesburg, WV! The beautiful backdrop of mountains provides a wonderful place to relax. Dip your feet into the Cheat River while you recover from the day's stage. Solo and duo riders are scored on their combined times over the two days of racing.
The MSDD has the race categories you are used to, but we also have duo classes for those who are afraid to get lost in the WV back hollers all alone! Duo Class scoring: Time based on the second finisher of the Duo Team. Team members MUST finish together! Team members finishing more then 1 minute apart will be disqualifed.
Each stage of the MSDD is 36"ish" miles in length, with around 4000ft of climbing. Road conditions for each stage consist of paved, tar & chip, gravel and dirt roads. You're not from West Virginia? Beware, our dirt roads may be something some riders would consider a path! Road bikes and tires smaller then 35cm are not recommended. Mountain bike style cycling shoes would be best for this event. Both days include one aid station, near the halfway point of each days racing. See the registration page of the MSDD for complete information on rules, racing classes, maps, lodging and payout/prizes.
