Lachlan Morton’s resilience shone brightly at Unbound Gravel today. Neither grueling solo efforts nor a wrong turns, nor moments of self-doubt could break the Australian's day at Unbound today. 

The fan-favorite from EF Education-EasyPost entered the finishing in downtown Emporia together with Chad Haga (PAS Racing) for a two-up sprint and came out ahead.

Anne-Marije Rook
North American Editor

Cycling Weekly's North American Editor, Anne-Marije Rook is old school. She holds a degree in journalism and started out as a newspaper reporter — in print! She can even be seen bringing a pen and notepad to the press conference.

Originally from The Netherlands, she grew up a bike commuter and didn't find bike racing until her early twenties when living in Seattle, Washington. Strengthened by the many miles spent darting around Seattle's hilly streets on a steel single speed, Rook's progression in the sport was a quick one. As she competed at the elite level, her journalism career followed, and soon she became a full-time cycling journalist. She's now been a cycling journalist for 11 years.
