This past weekend saw the running of the 2017 Lost and Found Gravel Grinder in the Sierra with a start at Lake Davis, CA. The new 100-mile course provided competitors with 7,000 feet of elevation and 80% dirt. The start list contained world class athletes and no shortage of talent. For the Pro Women, Katerina Nash took the win with Carl Decker

The start list contained world class athletes and no shortage of talent. For the Pro Women, Katerina Nash took the win with Carl Decker repeating his victory from last year for the Pro Men. With the variety of challenges that endurance gravel racing provides, the choice of bike can be as varied as the riders themselves. Take a look at the winner’s bikes here.

Nash Breaks Away

Katerina Nash has proven that her mountain biking skills cross-over very well in the cyclocross arena, taking a Bronze at the 2017 World Championships in Bieles this past January. Nash chose to ride her Orbis (Orbea/Ibis) to victory (but we are unable to confirm if her dog helped her motorpace).

Nash had a healthy lead by the end of the race and led the field of 15 Pro Women by about 27 minutes. Nash would have finished 14th in the men’s field.
