Road Race Gravel & Pave Video/Results 2019

Results, video and picture links from the cycle road race 2019 calendar which feature gravel, pave and dirt.

Road races that have in common a touch of the ‘Roubaixesque’ about them.

I am now based in Germany and so sadly I cannot say that all the video links can be viewed in other countries or will survive review by the geo-restriction or TV rights ‘police’. You can use a VPN service should you be denied access.

A full list of races is here in our 2019 Preview.

Main picture is a screen shot from Postnord Vargarda held on August 18, 2019.

Last Race – Colorado Women’s Classic Stage 1  (see below) – Next Race – La Vuelta stage 9: Andorra la Vella – Cortals d’Encamp 96.8 kms – September 1 2019 : (see information)

Colorado Women’s Classic Stage 1 – August 22
The Colorado Classic stage race is held from August 22 to the 25th and for 2019 it is for women only after the organisers dispensed with the men’s race.

In 2018 the race started off in Vail with a gravel climb near race start which they took on for a number of laps and this time in 2019 stage one is out and back from Steamboat Springs.

The route of 88k has plenty of hills and includes 10k of gravel.

Sadly there is almost no video from the gravel despite the stage l leader being caught and the winning move having been formed there.

Dwars Door Het Hageland  – June 21 2019

The sun shone for the 2019 edition nonetheless many of the off road sections were still wet and muddy from previous storms. A lead group went free and from this one rider jumped away to win.

This race in the past has featured some epic MVDP and Wout battles in the past but not this year as both are elsewhere, nonetheless there were some great cyclo cross riders on the start sheet.

This is a round of the Bingoal Cycling Cup.

Paris Roubaix – April 14 2019

Paris Roubaix begat the Tour de France and was first held to promote the newly built Roubaix velodrome, in a town once called ‘Little Manchester’ at the height of the Industrial Revolution. Paris Roubaix like many races also plays a part in a media war fought out between newspapers and it had a role in the infamous ‘Dreyfus’ affair that rocked France before WW1.

The pave is simply brutal (and a head wind can be soul destroying) and the route through Picardy to Northern France, running close to the fighting line of WW1 gave rise to it becoming known as the ‘Hell of the North’.

Gent Wevelgem – March 31 2019
In addition to twice up the Kemmelberg climb the race features three ‘dirt’ sections (ploegsteerts or ‘plug streets, the latter pointing out the inability of Commonwealth soldiers to grasp hold of Flemish nuances in WW1).

On these dirt and cobbled roads lie many clusters of spent humanity on what was once the fighting line through Belgium and France – We rode the Kemmelberg in 2013: https://veloklubhaus.com/2018/03/12/riding-the-kemmelberg/
