ELBERT COUNTY, CO – This Memorial Day weekend, COS Racing will be headed to Elbert County and the Peaceful Valley Scout Camp to compete in three days of off-road racing at the 2023 Mad Gravel event present by Rattler Racing. This event will consist of a gravel circuit race, gravel road race, an XC MTB event, and a trail run.
In addition to historically being one of the home races for COS Racing, this event is particularly significant because Mad Gravel has incorporated the HEMI gravel race into its program. The HEMI was previously a separate gravel event held in Kansas in remembrance of Craig Henwood – the son of COS Racing team members Kristine and Steve Johnson – who was killed in a gravel race in 2019.
Rattler Racing is also partnering with team sponsor and coach Daniel Matheny of Matheny Endurance to provide coaching services in preparation for this event.
We are anticipating significant COS Racing participation in this event and encourage the off-road cycling community to join us for an exciting three days of racing.
