The alternative calendar is our attempt at changing the status quo in cycling. Together with EF Education First Pro Cycling we want to expand the sport’s horizons to make it a more engaging and entertaining prospect for all. We’ve been waiting a while for a race tough enough to get us started but, with the Garmin Dirty Kanza – a 200-mile gravel grinder in rural Kansas – the waiting is over. A trio of the EF team’s WorldTour pros swapped tarmac for trail and invited us along for the ride. Now, we bring the story of the race to you. #GoneRacing Music: Builder’s Tea – https://builders-tea.com/ —————————————————— About EF Gone Racing: In the bus. At home.
