The Dirty Spokes Story!
The Dirty Spokes Story… Dirty Spokes Productions We are a southeastern athletic events company specializing in off road races. Who are the brains behind Dirty Spokes Productions? We are mountain bike and trail running enthusiasts like the rest of you. The events we have put together are designed for mountain bikers and trail runners to have fun, be competitive, change lifestyles, allow you to set personal goals and provide an endless supply of great memories! No matter the level (novice to expert) it is out there for you. Come on out and see why we follow the creed “Ditch the City”!
We understand you put in hours and hours of training and preparation for these events so we feel your race day experience should be rewarding! We want all aspects of our event production to be seamless so you have a great race experience… from the registration process (fast and smooth), races starting on time (8:30 A.M. SHARP unless otherwise noted), clearly marked courses, chip timing, preliminary results and fast accurate awards ceremony so you can enjoy the rest of your day!
Since our first event in 2005 we have slowly evolved into putting on about 25-30 events each year… those events include the Dirty Spokes 9/6 Hour Mountain Bike Race, Dirty Spokes Trail Running Races, XTERRA Trail Running Races and Dirty Spokes Off Road Duathlons. We travel throughout the Southeastern U.S. (Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina) spreading the word and hoping you enjoy your Dirty Spokes Experience! We are not trying to re–invent the wheel just trying to perfect the roll. We are glad you are interested in the races and look forward to seeing you at the starting line!!!
Dirty Spokes gives back to the community! We are proud to continue the tradition of donating money back to local organizations… since the inception of Dirty Spokes we have always taken great pride in donating money back to local trail building ⁄ maintenance groups for their efforts in helping at our races! Since 2005 we have donated back over $53,000 to local organizations for helping at our events!
What´s on tap this year? Dirty Spokes will host the following events this year… Dirty Spokes 9/6 Hour Endurance Mountain Bike Race, XTERRA Georgia Trail Running Series (7 Race Series); XTERRA Alabama Trail Running Series (5 Race Series); XTERRA North Carolina Trail Running Series (3 Race Series); Dirty Spokes Trail Running Series (7 Race Series); Dirty Spokes Off Road Duathlon Series (3 Race Series) and the Georgia State Parks Trail Running Series (4 Race Series).

Timing for the Dirty Spokes Races... we take great pride in putting on our events and want every aspect from start to finish to be first class. We have purchased three timing systems and will either be using "reusable velcro ankle chips" or "disposable bib tag" chip timing for each of our events.
