Ted King Wins SBT GRVL on Rene Herse Tires

Ted King Wins SBT GRVL on Rene Herse Tires

The inaugural SBT GRVL (Steamboat Gravel) race saw more than 1,500 riders at the start in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The field include the Who-Is-Who of gravel racing: Ted King, Colin Strickland and Payson McElveen and other top-level racers.

It turned out to be an exciting race over the beautiful high-country gravel roads. Attacks whittled the field first to 15, then five, then two: King and McElveen. And then Ted King crossed the finish line alone for a well-deserved win.

Ted King’s bike was a replacement, put together at the last minute after his own rig was damaged during the flight to Colorado. Rene Herse Bon Jon Pass 700C x 35 mm tires provided speed and comfort on the smooth high-country gravel.

    Who do we have to thank for the damage to Ted’s bike?

    I’m amazed at the number of Asian bike travelers who simply turn the handlebars, remove the pedals and pop the bike in a clear plastic bag. Very rarely any damage.

    Brilliant!! These are the same tires we’ve been riding for 2 years on our custom steel Sweetpea and Civilian bikes. Smooth, fast and reliable in all road and gravel conditions
