26-28th OF April 2024
A unique gravel festival with a truly spectacular event course to meet like-minded gravel grinders from all over Europe!
The desert of Gorafe and surroundings of Baza provide a spectacular environment for gravel riding and is considered by many as the most impressive location for gravel riding in Europe.
A spectacular track in the desert of Gorafe with more than 90% on perfect gravel roads and stunning views! You can choose between 170km +2500m, 110km +1600m, 50km +650m. For all three distances we will have a ranking. 170km distance counts for the Gravel Earth Series
A extremely fun and divers road around Baza with a great mix of single trails, fire roads and short punchy climbs and ends with a short hill climb competitions up Jabalcòn. Gravel at its absolute best and the perfect way to start the weekend. The first 20 men and women are allowed to start from the front on Saturday.

Taxi service from Malaga Airport or Granada to Guadix.
