With the current climate of events becoming non-existent this year the North American cycling world was hit particularly hard. One event chose to press forward and conduct a race! The Belgian Waffle Ride looked to host their new event in a new location in Cedar City, Utah. Normally based in San Diego and after years of success, the BWR would host a gravel-specific event in Utah consisting of 125 miles over dirt roads with 6,000 feet of elevation gain all while sitting at an altitude of 4,500 ft. With a gravel style event you can expect to see an array of different style of riders show up. To fly the Monster Hydro flag, we had none other than current XC MTB National Champion Keegan Swenson make the trip out to Cedar City just a few days after arriving home after a five-week block of racing in Austria, which consisted of four World Cups and the XC MTB World Championships. Also showing up to the start line would be fan favorite Tj Eisenhart, who stepped away from professional racing on the road last year to pursue his own program within the new gravel/adventure racing world. To round out the Hydro crew Brian McCulloch; current road professional, who won the Belgian Waffle Ride in 2018, would look to come back and put a stamp on the new Belgian Waffle Ride in Cedar City.SEE MORE

Missed it this weekend? Short story: Monster Energy athletes dominated.
The White Rim Trail in Moab is a famed 100-mile loop in Canyonlands National Park. In 2019 the record was set, the “Fastest Known Time” on a bicycle was under 6hrs. This is no easy task for any human, the loop stretches across the vast canyonlands carved by the Colorado River. It's full of a colorful landscape that has eroded into countless canyons, mesa’s, and arches. This makes for a daunting task on a self-supported bike adventure.
Former professional motocross racer turned physical trainer Gareth Swanepoel currently has his hands full as the Covid-19 Pandemic put a pause on the 2020 racing series which resulted in a much later end time to the series.
