Hico, TX
May 20th, 2023


We have created VIP Experiences featuring our professional athletes that includes three events, on and off the bike, to offer you the ultimate Gravel Locos Experience while raising more funds for our Cause!

Each event is open to all but is a much smaller and intimate event that is limited to a very small number of participants. As such, we recommend that you start registering immediately.

100% of the funds raised from these VIP events go directly to the Hico VFD.


👑Thursday 5/12 evening (Time TBD): Mingle with the pros in Burleson, TX

This event is your first opportunity to get to know and hang out with all the pros while enjoying food and drinks in a nice indoor/outdoor venue in Burleson (20 min drive South of DFW).

The pros will discuss with you their background, the projects that are close to their heart and their love for gravel. Our pros will also share tips and talk about various topics based on their personal experiences, ranging from how to get ready for long gravel races, recovering from injuries, adapting their season and travel plans after becoming a parent, to why you should consider trying a vegan diet or adding weightlifting to your training routine. You will also get the opportunity to ask them your questions!
