Grit | Dirty Kanza
Isaiah Jay Presents Grit. During the early morning hours of June 2, 2018, over 1,000 cyclists poured into the modest downtown of Emporia, Kansas. Located within the state's eastern Flint Hills region, Emporia represented the starting line from which the horde of cyclists would set out on the remote, 200-mile gravel-road race known as the Dirty Kanza. Grit follows four riders from The Adrenalin Project (TAP)—a collective of endurance athletes focused on celebrating their competitive environments—as they labor through the race's grueling terrain and summon the will to keep grinding ahead, from one checkpoint to the next.
