Two flat tyres didn’t stop American Lauren De Crescenzo from winning the women’s Unbound Gravel 200-mile (320 km) race. Coming from a road racing background (and a one-time holder of the women’s Everesting world record), De Crescenzo took the lead with 55 miles (89 km) to go and eventually built up a 16-minute gap over second-place finisher (and 2019 winner) Amity Rockwell (follow the link to see the bike Rockwell rode). 

A member of the Cinch Elite cycling team, De Crescenzo rode a Colnago G3-X gravel bike for the event. Below is her bike, photographed after spending 12:06:49 on the Kansas gravel course.
