Last weekend, Kansas played host to the biggest gravel event of the year - Unbound Gravel. The weekend was made up of a total of six events, spanning everything from a 250-mile junior race to the gargantuan 352-mile epic that is Unbound XL.

Among these races, were the 100-mile and 200-mile pro events, both of which were won by women aboard a brand new Canyon prototype gravel bikes. Camouflaged beneath a black and bronze paint job, is what looks like a potential successor to the Canyon Grail. Only this time, there aren't any double-decker bars in sight.
