Laurens ten Dam: ‘Gravel world was already in shock, but now completely’
Ivar Slik took the win in the American state of Kansas on Saturday with the victory in Unbound, the mother of all gravel races, also known as Dirty Kanza. After plodding 320 kilometers on unpaved (and this time also) soaking wet roads, the 29-year-old from North Holland turned out to be the strongest. After 9 hours, 22 minutes and 4 seconds, the former Team Roompot rider settled in a sprint with Keegan Swenson and Ian Boswell. “This was my goal this year. I’m so incredibly happy to win the biggest graveyard event in the world,” said Slik, who crossed the finish line unrecognizable.
