About Grounded Nebraska
Experience More, Race a Little Less
As longtime locals, this event was born from wanting to share the feeling of being in rural Nebraska. Being immersed in the landscape and endless Nebraska skies inherently brings a sense of being grounded.
We are building an event with an intentional focus on accessibility, inclusion, and diverse perspectives. Grounded Nebraska has women, non-binary, and men race categories, equity-based cash prizes, a land usage tax, and an Advisory Board.
Passionate about the community and connection cycling brings but recognizing the time commitment gravel racing requires, we wanted an event welcoming the riders and their crew alike.
While the rider puts in the miles, there’s a day-long festival, at an iconic venue, with activities for those who aren’t riding.
Grounded Nebraska Advisory Board
These fine folks make up our Advisory Board focused on providing insight on everything from race experience, festival ideas, and the creation of inclusive spaces. Their unique skillsets and expertise are helping to build the event.
