This was Durbuy Gravel

9 - 11 September 2022




9 - 10 - 11 September

Durbuy Gravel
The fourth and final event of the Flanders Gravel Series in 2022 is done and dusted! Durbuy Gravel was a tough one. Not only because of the challenging routes and altitude meters, but also because of the muddy and sometimes rainy conditions. Respect for all Weekend Warriors and Saturday Troopers! 

On 9, 10 and 11 September we were gravel grinding in Durbuy, the smallest city in the world. In the middle of the beautiful Ardennes countryside beginners and experts could choose between four stunning routes of 45, 65, 105 and 140 km. After a hard day of riding, we finished it off with beers, delicious food, bikes and live music, a true bike festival. Thanks to all Weekend Warriors and Saturday Troopers for making this a great event. Now it's time to relive Durbuy Gravel and to check the aftermovie and photos ⚡️
