Last year was a breakout year for Sarah Sturm. Some have even said that Sarah is the next big thing in gravel. She toed the line at Belgian Waffle Ride in May with very little expectations as the distance of 130 plus miles would be the longest ride she had ever taken on. She won! Not only did she win but she won by over 13 minutes. Rewind one month to Sea Otter where she entered the pro women’s road criterium on her gravel bike. She won! Sarah went on to place second in her first Leadville Trail 100 mountain bike race in August and defended her US national single speed title at cyclocross nationals late in the year. Sarah is a dynamic rider who takes on challenges to see what she is capable of, to test her own limits, to explore the unknown and to inspire others. You will not meet another person who smiles more or is as stoked to be on her bike than Sarah.
