We’ve been covering the biggest weekend in gravel for quite a while now, since 2008 to be exact.
With the cancelation of the 2021 Lost and Found gravel race typically held on the same day, all eyes and gravel racers are aimed at Kansas’ Unbound Gravel race this weekend.
Formerly named Dirty Kanza, Unbound Gravel returns after a pandemic-canceled year to serve up adventure, pain and belt buckles.
With Saturday’s main event, the 200-mile race will be the 15th running of the event.
We looked at some of the names to watch this year earlier this week, but today we’re taking a look back at the previous winners of the female and male division:
