What is Y&D?
Young & Dangerous Gravel Race is a self-supported, endurance bicycle event along the gravel and dirt roads of Muda river, Kedah. The idea to create Young & Dangerous Gravel Race was born in 2021, at a time when gravel grinding was just beginning to catch the interest of the endurance cycling community, mainly during the Covid-19 pandemic. Inspired by some of the early gravel grinder events, our event founders knew that the beauty of the region along Sungai Muda Kedah is best explored on two wheels, and with that, Y&D took shape thus becoming the 1st ever gravel race in Kedah.
The name ‘Young’ taken from the Sungai Muda name, while the word ‘dangerous’ was added just to spice things up for the young generations.
