From a Gravel weekend following the Unbound and Ranxo to other interesting news you can't miss.
Great Gravel weekend
Unbound on Saturday and Ranxo on Sunday got our attention.
It was a great weekend for the gravel lovers. Unbound got us pending Friday & Saturday, we were following the XL and cheering for our Girona members to get out the best results. Ulrich did an amazing race and hit the 3rd place.
Saturday it was the turn of the 200mi, exciting race for men and women, a lot of mud and despite the lack of good streaming and info we had been pending until the finish line; an interesting finish with a sprint end for the men and a solo ride for Carolin, what an amazing season also for her after another solo winning at Traka.
Sunday it was the turn for Ranxo gravel, the UCI Gravel race not far from our home, Girona. Big names like Alejandro Valverde and Ivan Cortina from the Movistar team were on the startlist.
This Wed join us for a fun and easy ride.
Another sunset affair ride is here! we have a date on Wed at 18:30h to a social gravel ride to have fun, take pictures and drink beers at the end powered by Komoot…and maybe another surprise for you ;)
