Pure Gravel Announces 2021 Gravel Cycling Power Rankings

CARLSBAD, Calif. - Dec. 8, 2021 - PRLog -- Pure Gravel is excited to announce this year's Gravel Power Rankings results. The rankings give points to the top fifteen finishers at the largest gravel cycling events of the year.

Entering their 4th year, the Pure Gravel Power rankings have become a valuable resource used by brands and athletes to identify the events gaining the most traction with the gravel riding public. In the true spirit of gravel, the Pure Gravel Power Rankings are unbeholden to corporate biases or governing bodies. Taking their lead from the gravel riding populous, the rankings measure what is happening and do not seek to exclude or restrict which events matter.

The first half of 2021 was still firmly in the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic, but towards the middle of the year events started to come back again. It was a rough start, but the year ended strong with 15 large events held across the country. Pure Gravel has compiled all of the data and calculated the results to bring a spotlight to the inspiring athletes competing in these events.

"We love gravel riding and racing, and we applaud the inclusive character of these mass-start gravel events. It is a compelling sport filled with inspiring storylines that we can all feel a part of. We are trying to help tell that story for fans like us."  — Pure Gravel
