Specialized and Shimano are sponsoring a slew of top riders and well-known names in various categories at this year’s Unbound Gravel. Included in the mix are former winners Ian Boswell and Alison Tetrick, three-time men’s world road champion Peter Sagan (and his teammate, Daniel Oss), fellow former road pros Pete Stetina and Laurens ten Dam, Ironman competitor Heather Jackson, and Shimano Gravel Alliance members Lissa Muhammad and Marley Blonsky (the star of All Bodies on Bikes). 

Wondering what they’re riding (or pushing through the mud) on Saturday? Luckily for us, the marketing teams at Specialized and Shimano saw fit to send us a whole bunch of images to share. Best to feast your eyes on these now, because if the weather forecast holds, none of these bikes will ever look this good ever again.

Best of luck to everyone racing this weekend!
