"In 2015 I wrote a less complete version of this song for Salsa Cycles who was making a short film about the Dirty Kanza 200. This film, as many will remember is called I Ride For Her.  

In 2015 and 2016 I rode the DK 200. I saw first hand what a tremendously positive impact this race has had on the community. I went back to the song and wrote a couple more verses. I wanted to capture more of what I had experienced and I also wanted to pay tribute to Joel Dyke and the role he played in creating this incredible event.

With the help of my partners at Salsa Cycles and Jim Cummins at Dirty Kanza Promotions we want to use this song to help support Joel's wife Michelle and family. The download price is set at $1.99 but there is an option to pay more if you would like to. Simply follow the prompts when you buy. All the proceeds from the first penny go to Joel’s family.

Thank you for riding hard and grinnin’ big!”
