From industry trends, to bike touring and pro racing, gravel is everywhere. The discipline has exploded in popularity in the last couple of years thanks to its laid back vibes but challenging courses. It was only a matter of time before other endurance disciplines would want a slice of the gravel pie. And come September, California will host the first U.S.-based SGRAIL gravel triathlon.  

Founded by three-time world champion and Olympic triathlete Jon Frodeno, the SGRAIL competition will see contestant tackle an open water swim, followed by a gravel race and end on a trail run.
