The day before Gravel Worlds, I had the chance to sit down with race organizers Craig and Corey. I wanted to know - why? Why give up your time, money, vacation days, energy, and sleep- to put on a demanding event like this? What do they get back from it? Turns out - a lot. Serving others actually serves them both in really meaningful ways. Many people do things like this to make money on the side but for these guys- just the opposite. It's to give back - to the cycling community, and also the larger local community.
