Why the Ltd Gravel Raid?

When I was living in the US, I did a couple of off-road races, which were a lot of fun. Gravel endurance races over 100 miles with 10,000 feet of climbing, high up in a remote area. With several timed sections that count for the win there was a competitive edge to it.

It’s about more than racing though; it’s a celebration of cycling, of having a good time on the bike. But you need to have balls to do it too. It’s challenging and I wanted to bring this to Europe and to my cycling friends. And here we are, the Laurens ten Dam LtD Gravel Raid.


A cycling adventure unlike anything you’ve done before.

Gravel Grinding

Our routemeister came up with the best routes of Hellenthal region. It's both beautiful and challenging. With a well-balanced mix of paved and unpaved, flat and hilly, fast and technical, social and competitive. Pick your distance: 110K or 140K!


Life is about more than riding a bike. So we offer a great music festival with live music (GUITARS) and DJ's. So prepare for a good party with craft beer, marshmallows at the camp fire and hearty food!

Top-notch food

Food is included in your entrance fee: Friday dinner buffet, raceday breakfast, lunch and dinner and breakfast on Sunday. On the route we have Food Stations. The best bars and proper hearty food!

What's in

It's all in the package:

A tent spot on the LtD Festival Camping
Meals at LtD's food court
2 feed stations on race day
The best routes (on race day and more!)
Not just a mecanic. We'll bring a good one!
Live music and fun at the Festival

What Bike?





A gravel bike is the go-to bike for this event. However there are no limitations.
A cross bike, MTB or a road bike with gravel proof 32mm tires (with profile!) will also do the job.
