In December of 2019, Ian Boswell announced his retirement from road cycling and his shift in focus to gravel racing. Ian set his sights on all things adventure. Riding is fun. Racing should be fun. But it’s hard to remember that when focusing on wins and watts, podiums, and purses. He transitioned away from the status quo to experience the joy of racing again.

After a long time spent training solo, Ian is back into racing with the rest of the world. In this episode of Frontiers, Ian Boswell shares his story of racing gravel post-pandemic, being back with a group of riders, and experiencing both the camaraderie and competition once more to become the Unbound King of Gravel.
