In less than 10 words: More singletrack, got my Wolfman pin. So did Bo!
Only those who finish all four days of the Gravel Rouser receive the coveted Wolfman pin. So after finishing the Strouds Run Death Loop, Bo and I became two out of only 13 to received the pin this year. At 13-years-old, Bo became the youngest rider to ever receive the Wolfman pin and he definitely deserved it! Even though he got a ride back from Saturday’s race, he rode 75 miles in four days including having to walk about five miles on the last day because a stick took off his derailleur.
Overall, the Gravel Rouser was an AMAZING time and I’m planning to make it an annual tradition. Hopefully next year Syd will be Stateside and able to attend as well!
