Ladies and Gentlemen,
It's Phil. here. I don't know about you, but the snow and mud covered trails of British Columbia have been impossible for me to resist, hence my radio silence.
I wanted to pen a message to you to pass on some good news and some bad news. I shall start with the bad news:
The Dirty Phil. 2018 will not go ahead.
Travis and the NTSQ Sports team have received an extraordinary opportunity to grow their InnerVoice website and will be heads down chasing endurance athletes across North America, Europe and Australasia. The NTSQ team created my inaugural race, so I'm sure you'll understand that these are extenuating circumstances for such a successful event not to go ahead in 2018.
Now, the good news:
The Dirty Phil. will be back in the future.
Nothing is forever, and the objective is for The Dirty Phil. to return to your gravel fondo calendar in the future. As off-road cycling continues to boom around the world, I want more excuses to ride on gravel, mud and sand. You're already a member of The Dirty Phil. email list, so you'll be the first to know once there are new developments.
I look forward to seeing you on the trails in the future.
