70 kilometers of road, mud and lots of gravel, from Paris to Ancaster in Ontario, Canada. Sound like a good time? Paris to Ancaster has been doing gravel since before gravel racing became the new “in” racing, for 21 years now.

This year, Cyclocross Magazine was out there in full force, with our columnists Christine Vardaros (see Vardaros’ Stevens Superprestige bike here) and defending champion Justin Lindine racing to top spots—third and fifth, respectively—with gravel reporter Aaron Cruikshank and this reporter (Molly Hurford) in the mix behind, determined to get the full experience for a gravel feature in our upcoming Issue 25. The team was rounded out with amazing photographer Ethan Glading on hand to follow the race action and capture the beauty of gravel racing.

Anthony Clark of the JAM Fund, brought up to the race by current National Champion Jeremy Powers, took the win, with Canada’s Evan McNeely (Norco) and Adam Morka (WFP Coaching/Trek) behind. In the women’s race—a race within the race, as all Elites start together—Rochette (Luna Chix) took the win using her technical prowess in the final mud section before the killer hill that headed straight to the finish line. Behind her, Belgian powerhouse Ellen Van Loy (Telenet-Fidea) took second and Vardaros (Stevens) took third.

Stay tuned for interviews with Rochette and Clark, some bike profiles, photos and more!
