Gallery: Cold weather gear at the Old Man Winter Rally

The weather forecast called for heavy snow and cold temperatures for Sunday's Old Man Winter Rally gravel race in Lyons, Colorado. Thus, the participants planned accordingly, and arrived to race with a wide array of bikes, tires, bags, and gear designed to accommodate the cold and snowy conditions.

But that wasn't before we snapped some photos of the gear that these riders used to beat the snow, ice, and cold.
