The Dirty Donut is the first event of its kind held to be held on dirt roads. It offers three different distances of races, 18, 40, and 64 miles, and welcomes a wide variety of cyclists. Everyone from the very serious racer to those that just want a fun riding experience have a place at this event. Each race distance will have “donut stops” positioned along the race route. The short race will have one “donut stop” while the other two distances will have three “donut stops”. Participants will deduct five minutes from their final finish time for each donut they consume at one of our “donut stops” in the race.
Sound like fun? It all takes place on Sunday June 9, 2019 as part of the National Donut Day celebration weekend. The race will start and finish at the US 131 Motorsports Park in Martin, Michigan. A very beautiful high quality medal will be presented to everyone who finishes. We have even more hardware for our divisional and age division winners as well!
