A Conversation with Steamboat Gravel Founder, Mark Satkiewicz

In case you've been living underneath a rock, gravel racing is hot AF right now. It's registration season for the 2020 calendar, and races are filling up faster than a Walmart on Black Friday. One of our favorite races of 2019 and a first year event in our backyard, Steamboat Gravel, was a smashing success and it's back with more ambition and awesome for next year. Frank sat down with one of the brains behind the event, Mark Satkiewicz to chat about the state of gravel racing, how SBTGRVL went this year, and what new changes to expect in 2020. Plus how to register for next year's race. For all things SBTGRVL, check out and we'll see in Steamboat!
