Gravel Results: 2019 Dirty Kanza 200 – Open Women, Open Men – Cyclocross Magazine

The Open fields for the 2019 Dirty Kanza 200 were the best in the race’s history, and the riders did not disappoint in putting on a good show.

On a warm Kansas morning and afternoon with perfect blue skies above the Flint Hills, two former teammates were crowned the new Queen and King of Kanza.

In the Open Women’s race, Amity Rockwell (Easton Overland Gravel Team) rode a consistent race to become the newest Queen of Kanza.

Rockwell was outside the top 10 early on but slowly moved forward as the miles added up. After moving into 4th, Rockwell passed Olivia Dillon (Velocio) with about 35 miles to go after the Californian flatted, and then she passed 2017 DK200 winner Alison Tetrick (Specialized) near 20 to go to take the lead for good.

Tetrick finished second, Sarah Max (Argonaut) third, Kae Takeshita (Panaracer / Factor p/b Bicycle X-Change) fourth and Dillon fifth.

In an Open Men’s race with five WorldTour pros, it was a Texan known for racing gravel and fixed-gear crits who carried the day. Colin Strickland (Meteor x Giordana) attacked with nearly 100 miles to go and rode that attack to a solo win.

Peter Stetina (Trek – Segafredo) and the EF Education First duo of Alex Howes and Lachlan Morton tried to chase him down after Checkpoint 2 but to no avail.

Stetina took second, Howes third, Morton fourth and Payson McElveen (Orange Seal Off-Road Team) fifth.

Quick results are below. Full results for all categories are available online.
