Riders on the 2009 Gold Rush RandonneeThe DBC 2010 Brevet Series is a training program to prepare riders for the longer distance events offered to randonneurs around the world. Our reputation for successful preparation of riders is legendary as are our brevets. Our brevets are designed for cyclists experienced in riding 100+ mile events and looking for longer distance challenges, something new, or joining the ranks of those who've completed Gold Rush Randonnee one or more times.

The brevet series is a sequence of four, increasingly longer cycling distances of

The DBC brevets can be used as qualifiers for other 1200 km brevets in 2010, The brevets can also be used toward qualifying for the 2009-10 RUSA Super Randonneur award and the Randonneur 5000 award.

Rider control/time stations (similar to century ride rest stops) are 30-65 miles apart and will be stocked with basic foods and beverages as part of the entry fee for all the events. Lee Mitchell and other well-known DBC volunteers will provide course monitoring during all brevets. In keeping with the randonneur spirit of self-sufficiency, sag support for DNF'ers may be minimal, so come prepared to finish and don't plan on giving up easily!
