ABOUT THE OREGON TRAIL GRAVEL GRINDER:
The 5-day gravel stage race, the Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder, is one of the toughest and most spectacular gravel races in all of North America. A hands down favorite among the top mountain bikers, roadies, and cross racers in the country, as well as amateurs looking for their next big challenge, we are delighted to see some of the top athletes in the triathlon joining the party. This past year we had the privilege of watching Heather Jackson compete and place in one of the most talented and stacked women’s gravel fields in the U.S. this year.
“Her performance and transition into gravel has been nothing short of amazing,” says Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder race director Chad Sperry.
“Watching first-hand how quickly she adapted to the rigors of gravel and utilized her triathlon fitness and skill to immediately find success in gravel’s toughest races was amazing to see. Having Heather join us each night in camp to hang out and chat was a special treat. She is not just an incredible athlete but a funny, and personable professional as well” says Sperry.
Encompassing 5 days of racing, the Oregon Trail Gravel Grinder is the only point-to-point gravel stage race in North America. Gaining inspiration from the grand tours 100 years ago the race takes riders over 350 miles and crosses the mighty Cascade Mountain range, not once but twice on gravel old logging roads and historic wagon roads. This is not only a race, it is an all-inclusive gravel bike experience. The event offers athletes full support over the five days by transporting equipment, feeding them tasty and nutritious meals, and providing camping and amenities such as nightly massages, warm showers, and the Fat Tire celebratory bar, allowing athletes to focus only on eating, sleeping, and riding some of the most spectacular and remote roads the West has to offer.
After inspiring us in 2022 with her racing performance we are excited to partner with Heather and PLUSH Global to create an exclusive early registration package for their members. Any PLUSH Global member who registers between Thursday, August 4th at 5 PM to Monday, August 8th at 5 PM will receive exclusive early registration, custom Wattie designed Castelli jersey, a spot in the team camping and RV corral, and the gravel experience of a lifetime. With an event cap of 400 riders, and limited VIP tent and RV packages available, this is a tremendous opportunity to sign up before registration goes live to the general public on September 1st. In addition, anyone who signs up before September 1st can cancel before March 1st for a full refund.
Come ride with Heather and your PLUSH Global teammates in beautiful Oregon where the gravel is unmatched and the adventure is epic.
