From the get go it was evident the 10th episode of the DK200 was going to be an endurance race for the ages. After a short stretch of well-groomed gravel just outside of Emporia, we quickly saw the effects of Mother Nature after record rainfalls in May. The terrain was gnarly and what lied ahead was virtually impassable by bike. Kanza don’t care.
I had the pleasure of shooting the world’s premier gravel grinder, Dirty Kanza 200, on Sat., May 30 in Emporia, Kan. Over the next few days I’ll post some of my favorite images from the event.
