Two races, one brutal course!  A one lap 100K race and for the ultimate challenge, a double lap 200K race. The course will take riders through some of Ohio's most scenic roads.  On each lap, riders will be challenged with over 7,500 feet of vertical climbing! Road conditions are a mix of paved, chip & seal, gravel, and dirt roads. The Funk 100k/200k is a self-supported event and riders must be prepared for any mechanical and nutritional needs. No outside support is allowed. This is a cue sheet race. The course is NOT marked, and the roads are open to normal traffic in the area.  Expect to encounter cars, trucks, horses, buggies, farm equipment, ATV's, buzzards, road kill, and the occasional farm dog at any given time. Rain or shine, it’s Funk time! The course will have sections from the previous years races along with some new sections.

2015 Funk Bottoms WInners

It started raining Friday around 9:00 while we were still marking the course.  The rain continued to be heavy all night.  Saturday morning, the Mohican river was less than a foot from going over its banks.  With rain in the forecast all day, we cancelled the 200K and just ran the 1 lap-100K due to concerns of flooded roads.  At the pre-race meeting I told everyone: whoever gets to a flooded road first and cannot pass will be declared the winner. Luckily we did not encounter any flooding, just 2 downed trees crossing the roads.

Save the date of June 25, 2016. 



Markley Anderson 200K winner

John Porter 100K winner

Judy Porter women 100K winner

Alex Valigosky single speed winner 3 years in a row!

Marlin Steinhauser wooden spoon award.
