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.

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 2020 is here.

Main picture is a screen shot from Paris Tours 2020 (see below).

Note: Racing was cancelled from late March because of the Covid-19 pandemic that swept the world and the last race held before racing was called off was Le Samyn on March 3. The season resumed with the Strade Bianche held on August 1.

Last Race – Gent Wevelgem and Paris Tours (See below) – Next Race – With the cancellation of Paris Roubaix and the Galway Classic the 2020 season closed and we will have to wait until 2021 for our next race. – Information.

Gent Wevelgem – October 11 2020

In addition to riding 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 the fighting line through Belgium and France – We rode the Kemmelberg in 2013.

It´s a shame that the ´Plugstreets´come early in the race and do not really mix up things.
