Road Race Gravel & Pave Reports 2021

Results, video and picture links from cycle road races held in 2021 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.

Normally I post a year long preview of races, but because of the ongoing Covid pandemic and the potential for cancellations (as was the case in 202o) it seems best to simply monitor the races and report on what is actually held.

Main picture is a screen shot from Paris Roubaix (men) – October 3, 2021

Paris Roubaix (men) – October 3, 2021
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’.

2021 was the first wet race in ten years.

Ronde van de Achterhoek – August 29 2021

There are many stretches of gravel and cobbles included on the Ronde van de Achterhoek. 

The race founded in 1969 came back to life in 2017 after stopping post the 1988 edition.

Sadly, the live coverage came as the race was on the last sector of gravel leaving most of the TV action to be held on wet and sometimes dirty asphalt.

Gent Wevelgem – March 28 2021

gentwevelgem2021

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.
