Stetina's Paydirt

Stetina’s Paydirt: The next frontier of Gravel Racing: The Pine Nut Mountains

Professional Cyclist Peter Stetina discovered his love of gravel and spirit of exploration in this range. It took a lot of dead ends and calls for help, but we finally hit Stetina’s Paydirt. Together with Carson City, Stetina Paydirt invites you for the expedition of a lifetime.

Carson City, Nevada

The perfect blend of competition and camaraderie; the Paydirt is equal parts race and celebration. With Bike Monkey’s Road Rally format; racing takes place on designated segments. It’s the perfect mix of full-gas racing while allowing you time to socialize, regroup, and enjoy the bounty of our aid stations.

This is a mixed terrain pavement/gravel/sand event. The course is 58 miles, 4,155′. Mixed-terrain gravel bikes are the best choice for this race.. A hardtail mountain bike will do if you have fast tires. We recommend having tubeless, 38c or larger tires with some tred.

The old way of all-out racing is not the way at Stetina’s Carson City Paydirt. Instead, the Paydirt consists of a handful of timed segments to keep things competitive without separating yourself from dear friends in the dusty west of Nevada’s desert.

This event is a competitive gravel/dirt/pavement event with awards for top 3 riders in various age and gender groups.

Segments will be announced closer to the event. But know that this event consists of a handful of timed segments to compete on rather than the traditional end-to-end race. This keeps some of the gathering and pack riding intact while still giving people a chance to best their friends and enemies.
