Do I need a dedicated gravel bike for the race course?

A:

Ultimately the choice of equipment is up the racer.  Here are some more details on the gravel sections of the course will be .5 miles on the Believe in Books foundation driveway, and a bit over a mile on the Dundee Road in from Bartlett to Jackson.  The dirt section on Dundee is mostly uphill so speeds will be low.  Both are heavily trafficked and maintained public dirt roads.  The overall course is 19 miles so the dirt sections are a small percentage of the overall course.
