We’re back for Part Two of the Future of Gravel Racing roundtable discussion. This conversation’s between several of the biggest names in gravel races, including promoters and owners of Crusher in the Tushar, Dirty Kanza, Rebecca’s Private Idaho, The Mid South, which was formerly known as The Land Run 100, SBT Gravel in Steamboat Colorado, and Pete Stetina, who’s a pro racer that’s just launched his own gravel ride event called Pay Dirt.
For Part Two, we pick up with MC Yuri Hauswald asking Pete what’ll happen when the World Tour pros start toeing the start line, whether promoters should cater to them or even create a “pro” category. And what do they think of the UCI starting a Gravel World Championship? It’s all here…
Miss Part One? Check it out here to hear the promoters talk about how they’ve built their events into the premiere gravel “bucket list” races over the years, how they run them, and why some cap the entries much lower than the others.
