ABOUT THIS RACE:
Race Starting Location:
312 Broadway, Sheridan, WY
The The Dead Swede Hundo is a Cycling race in Sheridan, Wyoming consisting of a 100 Miles and 20 Miles and 40 Miles.
The Dead Swede is dedicated to having fun on bikes! Sheridan County, Wyoming is home to some of the most beautiful places to ride. There will be three courses this year; The 100 mile Crusher, the 40 mile Cruiser, and the Little Ripper's 20 Mile.
The 100 mile race course will take you from the heart of downtown Sheridan (Black Tooth Brewing Company) along some gorgeous ranch country where you will then begin your ascent into the Big Horn mountains. From there, all we can say is RED GRADE ROAD! Bring your granny gear for this colossal climb! After that, enjoy a ripping decent back into the Sheridan Valley where you'll join back up with the 40 and 20 mile courses for a scenic cruise back to town, finishing at Black Tooth Brewing Company!
The 40 mile course will also start and finish at the brewery and will take you through more rolling ranch country along the base of the Big Horns. Enjoy a controlled start through town followed by a nice paved warm-up to get the legs spinning. Don't think we're not going to throw some hills at you. You'll kick off the firs gravel leg with the famous Beckton Hill. We can still be friends though, right?
New will be the Little Ripper's 20 Mile course. This race is focused on getting those brand new riders and youth out on course, having fun with the rest of us. Racers will be shuttled from Sheridan to the start of this course in Dayton, racing the last 20 miles of both the 40 and 100 mile courses. This course features 20 miles of some of Sheridan County's most scenic gravel and two track roads.
"Race" is a relatively loose term, as we want to encourage riders of all ages and abilities to be able to come enjoy our backyard! However, for the safety of riders, there will be cut-off times for designated aid stations.
After the ride, be sure to stick around at the brewery for a fun awards ceremony, food, drinks, and street dance!
