In the ethereal mountain town of Steamboat Springs, an event known as SBT GRVL would bring in a new era for gravel cycling. On the weekend of August 17-18, 2019, some 1,500 riders representing every US state made their way to northern Colorado’s Yampa Valley. With promises of a welcoming community, pristine gravel roads and a star-studded field, SBT had seemingly everything one would expect from a world-class gravel event.
The inaugural SBT GRVL race took place on August 18, 2019. Just a day later the organizers released this thank you video, giving us a preview of some of the content captured at the event. Stay tuned for more of our coverage and a full race report from SBT GRVL.
New for 2019, Moots introduces the Routt YBB ultra-compliant gravel bike. The bike incorporates the legendary Moots YBB ‘softail’ micro-suspension design, first pioneered on its mountain bikes in the1990’s, and adapts it to create the ultimate gravel bike.
Arguably the most exciting new gravel event in recent memory will debut in 2019. Set among the beautiful Rocky Mountains of Routte County, SBT GRVL is poised to make for an impressive race. In case you couldn’t interpret from the name, SBT GRVL will start and end in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Presented by Canyon Bicycles, the event takes place August 17-18, 2019.
