For some, a century of road riding isn’t enough, 100 miles on technical gravel is more their style. Then on the far extreme, you have the folks you participate in the Dirty Kanza 200, who have a penchant for suffering over a half day in the saddle.

In the 2014 race, local Kansas Native Brian Jensen and three-time winner Rebecca Rusch were able to tackle the dry course in about 11 and 12 hours, respectively, for the win.

This year was a game changer with the weather, however. The rain turned the 200 miles of the course into a slop-fest, and the already challenging features upped their difficulty.

Michael Sencenbaugh had positioned himself at the lead of the race for much of the 13 hours. Yuri Hauswald, however, who had been trying to maintain his second place position, caught up to Sencenbaugh with only several miles left to go. After over a half day in the saddle, the Men’s Race came down to a sprint finish, with Hauswald edging out the younger Sencenbaugh by a second.

Just as nail-biting, the Women’s Race saw some interesting developments. Although Rusch was the heavy favorite after her long stretch as the Queen of the Kanza, Amanda Nauman, a cyclocrosser that has already cemented her legacy in Southern California cyclocross, was able to soar to victory. Nauman beat the rest of the Woman’s Field by over twenty minutes, with second place Kristen Legan beating Rusch by over 15 minutes.

For videos of three stages of the race, we have included three short videos posted on YouTube by the Kansas City Star. Also, be sure not to miss Paul Clements’ video below on the sprint finish in the Men’s Race. Below the videos, you can find the full Women’s Results as well as the Men’s Top 100 Results.
