What do riders think about Dirty Kanza 200? The distance is intimidating, the crowds and ambiance are thrilling, and to win—that can change a rider's entire career.
Amity Rockwell joins the VeloNews Podcast to discuss Dirty Kanza, gravel cycling's sponsorship market, and what it's like to be the only female rider on a group ride. Plus, we hear from contributor James Startt about Remco Evenepoel's impressive win in Argentina.
The gravel season kicked off this weekend with Colorado's Old Man Winter Rally, a 100-kilometer trek across dirt roads in Boulder County. Heavy snowfall greeted racers on the morning of the event, and by the time they left the start line in Lyons, Colorado, several inches had accumulated on roadways. And then, just 15 kilometers in, the Colorado Department of Transportation made the decision to stop the event. That wasn't before VeloNews Photo Editor, Brad Kaminski, snapped some images of the snowy action in Colorado.
Katie Hall, Kate Courtney, Alison Tetrick, and Amity Rockwell will all line up at this weekend's Grasshopper Adventure Series. What makes the gravel series so popular amongst female riders? We asked the experts.
