WATCH THE “THIS IS NOT A GRAVEL RACE” FILM ON OUTSIDE TV
THIS IS NOT A GRAVEL RACE chronicles the 10th anniversary of the most unique cycling event in the country, the Belgian Waffle Ride. The only Spring Classic on American soil and a Monument of Gravel, the BWR CA is known as the 'Hell of the West’ and features an extremely challenging 135-mile multi-surface course across single track, rocks, water crossings, sand, gravel and some roads - all taken on in temperatures reaching 112 degrees even though it rained the morning of the race. This documentary highlights not only the arduous trails to victory for winners Peter Stetina and Katerina Nash but also the journeys of several other riders from a variety of backgrounds, including BMX star, Andrew Jackson, cycling newbie and former D1 soccer standout, IZ King, professional road cycling champion, Whitney Allison, and PR and marketing maven, Alain Mazer. With over 4,000 registrants, this was the largest gravel race in history and also the most interesting.
