In a groundbreaking move for gravel cycling, and cycling in general, the inaugural edition of Unbound Gravel will be live-streamed on-demand by FloSports. It’s a massive upgrade for what will be one of the largest bike races in the country.
FloSports cycling division FloBikes has streamed races from the Giro d’Italia to the Spring Classics for areas around the world outside the usual television coverage. But this will be the first time that an American gravel race will be streamed live.
Big names are on the startlist for the 200 mile event like 2019 winners Colin Strickland and Amity Rockwell as well as WorldTour pros Quinn Simmons and Matteo Jorgenson, who just finished the Giro d’Italia. Team Twenty24 is sending a handful of racers including Shayna Powless and Natalia Franco. Former pros, Peter Stetina, Laurens Ten Dam, Ian Boswell, Ted King will line up as well.
FloBikes offers a $13 a month subscription service to watch their cycling coverage. Check out their plan below, following the 100 mile race finish, images from the front of the race will be streamed across the second half of the course when service permits.
