Ian Boswell (Wahoo) continued his domination of the North American gravel scene, taking out the win in the Asheville Belgian Waffle Ride on August 21. The Unbound Gravel 200 race winner stormed clear of a select group on the final paved ascent after 90 miles of racing to seal the victory over Adam Roberge (Scuderia Pinarello) and Brennan Wertz (Team Mike’s Bikes p/b Equator Coffees).
Sofia Gomez Villafane (CLIF Pro Team) added to his recent victory at Crusher in the Tushar to win the women’s event ahead of Flavia Oliveira Parks (Excel Sports) and Tiffany Cromwell (Canyon-SRAM).
Heavy rains and flooding from the remnants of tropical storm Fred shortened the course slightly but the route still took in an ample number of gravel sections in North and South Carolina, including sectors around the scenic Lake Summit and Green River. The route circled the DuPont State Recreational Forest, climbing Pinnacle Mountain Road and descending past Cascade Lake before climbing Jeter Mountain Road to the finish at the Ride Kanuga mountain bike park and conference center.
