Remco Evenepoel was in the United States to do bike supplier Specialized a favor and rode in Kansas in his first gravel race. After more than 4 hours of racing, our young compatriot crossed the finish line in sixth place.

Mattia Cattaneo, an Italian teammate of Evenepoel at Deceuninck-Quick Step, finished eighth in the gravel race in Kansas. Evenepoel conceded 13 minutes on the first finisher, American transgender athlete Molly Cameron.

In total there were three distances during the Belgian Waffle Ride. American Tanner Ward was the best in the main race over 111 miles (or 178 kilometers).

Finnish F1 rider Valtteri Bottas finished ninth in the short distance over 36 miles (or 58 kilometers). Bottas' girlfriend Tiffany Cromwell (CANYON//SRAM Racing) also participated, the 2021 Olympian rode her second BWR this season and won the 111 miles womens race.

The Belgian Waffle Ride in Kansas is one of the many American gravel races, which are completed on almost exclusively unpaved roads. The Ride belongs to the kind of events that traditionally attract more recreationists than professional cyclists to the start, so that the experience is also of greater importance than the result.

Link to full results to be posted shortly ...

Remco rode on sponsor Specialized’s S-Works Crux, a 54cm frame, the S-Works Crux is an out-and-out gravel race bike and comes with SRAM's Red eTap AXS groupset, tipping the scales at just over 7kg.

The latest iteration of the Crux unveiled at the beginning of October, has been adapted towards the evergrowing numbers of off-road drop-bar racing fanatics.
