Ivar Slik won the Garmin UNBOUND Gravel 200-mile race Saturday after outkicking his breakaway companions in Emporia, Kansas, in a four-up sprint to the line. This feat makes him the first non-American to do so.

The Dutch rider had enough left in the tank to claim the win ahead of Life Time Grand Prix series leader, Keegan Swenson and last year's Unbound Gravel champion, Ian Boswell.
