TransIowa was a seminal event in U.S. gravel cycling, so when it held its 14th and final edition in 2018, a giant hole was left on the gravel landscape.

Fortunately for the Midwest ultra-endurance gravel crowd, a group of Iowans stepped in to start a new late-April event calledIowa Wind and Rock. Although nothing will ever be TransIowa, the event still challenged participants to ride 337 miles with over 28,000 feet of climbing in one go.

Event organizers Sarah Cooper, Dennis Grelk and Steve Fuller shared the motivation behind the race on the event website.

As Iowans, TransIowa finishers, and people who enjoy stretching personal boundaries, we didn’t want to see this unique opportunity for people to challenge themselves disappear. Iowa Wind and Rock is NOT, nor will it ever be TransIowa.
