Nat Ross (Subaru/Gary Fisher) and Tinker Juarez (Siemens mobile/Cannondale), long time friends and professional racing rivals, plan to duke it out at the inaugural Dirt Sweat & Gears 12 hour races in Fayetteville, Tennessee on April 28. At 43-years-old, Juarez is known for ability to go long in difficult terrain year after year while Ross is a seven year veteran of ultra-endurance racing.

The race, part of the USA Cycling Ultra Endurance calendar, is drawing attention by offering not only a large payout of US$10,000, but one that is equal for men and women.

Race Director Clay Higgins describes the event as "part endurance race, part concert and part picnic, wrapped up in a festival that's held on a spring weekend at the Cotton Mill Preserve."
