The Day Colin Saved Gravel

200 miles of the toughest gravel on earth. The ENVE crew and athletes headed to Emporia, Kansas to conquer the Kanza.

ENVE Athlete Colin Strickland of Meteor x Giordana Racing walked away as the overall champ and King of the Kanza, breaking the sub 10 hour mark after a solo breakaway effort 90 miles from the finish.

On the women's side, Sarah Max landed a 3rd place Women's podium spot after a long day battle brutal heat, sharp rocks, and more hills than she expected.

The ENVE crew had a good day in the gravel with DK200 finishes by Jake Pantone (ENVE VP of Product), Neil Shirley (Sponsorship Manager), and Ike Pantone (Test Operations Manager). Director Jeremy Venz put the cherry on top by finishing the DK100 mile race.
