12 km of gravel challenging for riders and their bikes
01 May 2022
Daniel Holt, Development Team General Manager (USA):
It looked like it was going to be challenging. Steep climb a the beginning, 12km “gravel” section on the sustained 20km climb, then a nasty kicker at the end. I told guys to be very alert at the front in the first 50km and try to follow a break if possible.yone.
Nathan Smith (UK):
“The race was pretty full-on all day. My legs weren’t great to begin with, but by the last hour I was able to follow some moves on the climbs and put some attacks in of my own. I ended up finishing in the main bunch”.
