Our first "running" of the Crush Royale (with cheese) was a final shakedown for the 2013 Dirty Kanza. The course is similar in elevation to Kanza and surprisingly included moderate winds throughout the day, nothing like those we expect in Kansas, but at least good training. We ran three loops of a 53 mile gravel course which provided rest stops as roughly the same intervals as the race. We encountered only one flat and a couple of gear adjustments during the day despite the nonstop violent shaking that riding on gravel produces. All fared well enough, despite the 1000 yard stare that Young Gun Ian provides at the end of the day :)
