They say that the 'gravel' are the bicycles of the future, that transmit the best sensations of cycling without any vehicle interrupting you, that you breathe mountain and nature... We don't know what tomorrow will bring, but today we are in love with gravel We are not the only ones. This is the reason of TRAKA GRAVEL. Next Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of September, Girona will host the first gravel stage race of the old continent.

In Girona you can breathe cycling in each of its corners; we will not discover it now. It's streets give way to an infinite world of possibilities on two wheels. Klassmark has decided to put the loudspeaker on it's old dream dusty roads. If Girona is a world reference of cycling for its roads and MTB for its singletrack, now it will also be the gravel. Get ready to live the best experience of your life. Welcome to the gravel paradise.

We are sons of Girona and we know the best places. We have organized MTB, gravel and road races sharing our secrets. Hold on tight to the handlebar of your bike, the rest is our concern. Two stages, 120 and 85 kilometers, which perfectly describe the gravel philosophy. The surroundings of the city, until arriving to its coast crossing the golden triangle of the Empordanet, will color the first edition of TRAKA GRAVEL.

The best gravel experience without giving up anything. Forget the headeaches. Girona will welcome the arrival and departure of both stages. Without displacements. Arrive pedaling from the hotel or the portal of your house. Ideal to live the city with yours doing what you like most. Relax in the streets of Girona, soak up its culture, mingtle withis its people and enjoy its gastronomy, but remember: another day of gravel experience without precedent will be wait you. The time has come to open the doors of TRAKA GRAVEL.
