Road Race Gravel & Pave Reports 2020

Results, video and picture links from cycle road races held in 2020 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 featured in 2019 is here and a look ahead through 2020 is here

Main picture is a screen shot from the Gravel and Tar held on January 25, 2020.
