The Lost and Found gravel race is one of the bigger events in the gravel scene, and each year it attracts hundreds of weekend warriors along with a number of famous pros who pick California Sierra mountains and scenery over 200 miles in Kansas.
It’s a shame both the Lost and Found and Dirty Kanza are on the same weekend, but the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, promoter of the Lost and Found, isn’t complaining, as its event typically sells out.
Cyclocross Magazine has been there since the first edition in 2014, and expects to be there yet again to cover half of the big weekend in gravel. Racers have a new course awaiting them, and for the first time since 2014, a new start and finish location.
The event will now start and end in the town of Portola, right near last year’s post-race party and in-town camping.
The new course offers 35 mile, 67 mile and 106-mile options with a bunch of climbing. The longest version offers 8100 feet of vertical.
Registration has just opened for the 2019 event, held on June 1, 2019.
Back for 2019 is the Builders for Builders handmade bike raffle. The raffle raises funds for trail building in the area, while offering up some handmade beauties for a few lucky donors.
