Iowa "B" roads, a cyclocross finish, and a post-race party in an orchard make Core4's sophomore edition a huge success.
Good times on gravel were not just happening in Steamboat Springs, Colorado last weekend — there was also a very good party:ride ratio over in Iowa City.
Core4 debuted last year as a sister event to Bentonville’s Rule of Three. What does that mean? For one, a four-pronged approach to course creation: singletrack, pavement, Iowa “B” roads, and a finishing cyclocross track. Vibewise, Core4 also took cues from RO3, offering three distances, all of which can be raced solo or on a three-person team.
BIKEIOWA Note: "puts Iowa gravel on the map" eh ?? We still are amazed at folks who are unaware that Iowa gravel has "been on the map" for decades!
