Dirt Rag’s world famous literature contest is a celebration of the written word. It’s our annual effort to recognize and reward writers who possess the ability to deliver fine prose with a cycling slant and a unique narrative style.


Judge’s decisions are final. Plagarism is a crime. Do not plagarize.

One entry per person. No more. Please include your name, the title of the piece, and your contact information.

All entries must be submitted via email only to editor@dirtragmag.com by November 1, 2012.

Two winners wil be chosen: first place and runner up. Winners will get awesome prizes and have their stories published in Dirt Rag. 

Remember: your entry MUST 1.) include a reference to cycling, preferably mountain biking, 2.) be original and previously unpublished, and 3.) be no more than 3,000 words, though shorter stories will not be penalized. 

Grand prize – Pivot Mach 5.7

The Pivot Cycles Mach 5.7 is the ultimate do-it-all, anytime, anywhere trail bike. If you’re an endurance racer who likes to take the hard line, an enduro guy or gal looking for a race-ready machine, or just a rider looking for one bike to tame nearly any trail, this is the bike for you. 

The Mach 5.7 features a balance of pedaling performance, 145mm of fully active travel through a dw-link suspension, and award-winning handling. For 2012 the frame gets a 142×12 thru-axle rear end and post mount disc brake tabs. The Mach 5.7 is sure to make riders smile.
