Well, I think that the novelty of riding on gravel has taken a huge step backwards. I see on Cycling News that the field for Strade Bianche this year was super stacked with talent. Pro riders, pro rigs, pro kit, all on Italian gravel. Hit up the thumbnail gallery for a look. Looks damn beautiful! Still, our little cycling secret is pretty safe until RAGBRAI announces a gravel option, right? Time to move on to a new "under the radar" cycling genre? Anybody wanna do Cycle Speedway this summer?
Now that's what I'm talking about!
