Justine Barrow flips from doubts over Unbound Gravel start to winning streak

Justine Barrow may not have exactly had the ideal preparation for her latest stint of gravel racing in the United States, having had to put her training on hold for yet more surgery on her AC joint in late January. But now the Australian gravel champion is coming into Unbound Gravel on a winning streak.

The first step was victory at the SEVEN UCI Gravel World Series race in Nannup on May 11, where she carved out a clear lead and set a new course record en route to the win. Then it was straight on a plane to make it to the United States in time for Gravel Locos the following weekend, and again, Barrow managed to pull out a big gap to her rivals and cross the line first, finishing 14 minutes ahead of second-placed Marisa Boaz.

“I’m definitely not just there to ride it; I’m definitely there to race it, but I crashed out last year, so getting through this year will be an achievement. Secondly, I really appreciate women’s only starts, and that just makes me look forward to it more.”
