The Iceman's Challenge Gravel Road Race and Adventure Pursuit is a fun, laid back gravel adventure event held at the historic Talbert Ranch in China Spring, Texas. The Iceman's Challenge is a race and adventure ride  organized to give gravel riders an opportunity to ride of some of the remote and most beautiful country roads in McLennan and Bosque Counties.  This year we  offer an 86 Mile Ultra Gravel Road Race and Adventure Pursuit Ride courses of 68, 54, and 36 miles.  The event takes place on Saturday, December 1, 2018, near Waco, Texas, with all courses located in McLennan and Bosque Counties.  The Iceman's Challenge offers routes along  beautiful  gravel roads, some shaded by trees and on sunlit country roads taking you through farm and ranch lands meandering by rivers and crossing creeks, and streams.  The four courses offered will feature roads with varying surface conditions from compacted gravel, small cinder-like sand, smooth dirt, rocky to smooth water crossings, rutted wash outs, chip seal and smooth asphalt pavement. The 86 mile and 68 mile courses will again offer the awesome Angel's Lair which feature four challenging climbs and descents with some of the most spectacular views from the highest elevations on the course.   Course routes average between 90-75% gravel roads with 20-25% paved roads.
