About the DUST BOWL 100

Welcome to Indiana’s Premier Gravel Race, the Dust Bowl 100 presented by Zipp! After successfully hosting a sold-out race featuring 800 riders from 29 different states in 2023, we are thrilled to announce the expansion of registration to accommodate 1,000 participants in 2024!

Set against the picturesque landscapes of the Hoosier state, the DB100 offers cyclists a unique journey through history and terrain. The meticulously designed course takes riders over some of the Midwest's finest gravel roads, weaving together both wide open farm fields and wooded creek valleys, stitched together by several iconic bridges echoing a century’s worth of stories.  

Whether you're a seasoned cyclist seeking a new and compelling challenge or an adventurous spirit eager to explore Indiana’s backroads on two wheels, we invite you to be a part of this journey with us.  Come get dusty!
