Race Recap: Gravel Worlds Nebraska

 

We followed two OBED ambassadors on their journey on one of the most iconic Gravel Races:

Gravel Worlds. At stake: a coveted Gravel World Champion jersey. The challenge? A tough field, and—a surprise on race day—overnight rains that soaked the dirt roads into soupy, sandy slog in most areas, and quite a few peanut butter mud sections that had riders hiking for long segments.

Follow along as Littleton, Colorado-based James Walsh pursues a Worlds jersey in his age group of the 150-mile event, ultimately finishing third. And join in on the overnight excursion of Chattanooga, Tenn. endurance racer Austin Sullivan, who took on the 300-mile Long Voyage, taking ninth overall.
