Bypassing the Unbound Gravel lottery – Rad Dirt Fest added as qualifier

A second event has been added as a qualifier for Unbound Gravel, with riders having a chance to obtain one of a hundred early entries to the popular event in Kansas by racing at the Rad Dirt Festival in Colorado on September 28.

A hundred qualifier coins will be up for grabs, half going to those who deliver top results among their category and the other half randomly distributed to finishers of both the 110 and 70 mile races. 

Unbound draws 4,000 riders to Emporia, Kansas at the start of June each year with its headline 200 mile event (322km) one of the most prized victories in the gravel scene. The race, which took place on June 1, was this year won by German rider Rosa Klöser (MAAP-Rose) and Australian Lachlan Morton (EF Education-EasyPost).

The newly announced Unbound qualifier, the Rad Dirt Fest, was made a part of the Life Time Grand Prix series last year, with the professional field taking on the 110 mile course – starting and finishing in Trinidad, Colorado – with over 10,000 feet of elevation gain. The 2023 winners were Alexey Vermeulen and Lauren De Crescenzo.
