Scratch Ankle Gravel Grinder
COURSE DIFFICULTY: 5 out of 10
A favorite venue of Chain Buster staff, the Scratch Ankle brings new meaning to “multi-surface” as it relates to gravel racing. Starting from a truly epic forest service air field inside the Krul Lake Recreation Area, the Scratch Ankle course is a mixture of hard packed dirt roads, gently rolling forest service roads, short sections of pavement, short, non-technical single track, and sand…LOTS OF SAND! Like all 2019 Chainbuster gravel events, this race will be offered in two distances.
“Truly an epic course! A great mix of terrain to keep you guessing what might happen at the next turn. There was hard pack, true gravel, single track, asphalt, hills, and sand. No other event can give you that mix!” – Hugh Myrick, 2018 Gravel Series Top Finisher
“I’m not sure what I expected out of this race. I did road races in the area several years ago, so I think I half expected it to be a lot of road with gravel sections. I couldn’t have been more wrong. What I loved about the race is the different dynamic of it. It’s unlike anything we have up here in Georgia (at least that I’m familiar with). What I mean is the SAND… That sand is BRUTAL!” –Chris Lessing, 2018 Masters Male Champion
