With gravel racing emerging as a popular discipline for both mountain bike and road riders, more events are popping onto this alternate calendar in Australia .
Cycling events can offer an economic boost to an area as well as a fun/ competitive challenge for participants. The upcoming Gravel N Granite in Tenterfield, NSW on March 12, 2022 is doing both. The event is an initiative from collaboration between the local council, state government, local mountain bike club and AusCycling. The inaugural Gravel N Grabite will provide a boost to a region stricken by drought, bushfires and of course Covid travel restrictions!
There are three distances, with 28, 65 and 102km – and entry fees start from $30 for Juniors.
