The first running of the Gravelleurs Raid took place yesterday. After a very stormy morning that threatened to zap the fun out of the whole race, the sky cleared up and the race was on! We were happy to be a sponsor for this race because it covered some of our very favorite Northeast Kansas gravel routes. The race looped together some great sections and classic climbs, and when combined with freshly drenched dirt and a gusting wind, added up to a very challenging day on the bike. We had a great crew of Sunflower staffers racing the event and it was a great to see so many friends out there. The full gallery of photos is on our Facebook page, head over and check it out.
