Orbea’s revamped Terra burst onto the scene late last year, bringing with it a fresh outlook on who to design a gravel bike for. 

With gravel spanning UCI sanctioned races all the way to long-distance roaming spanning weeks and months, trying to accommodate both those extremes in one bike just isn’t going to happen.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
