FNLD GRVL June 2023 (w/ Valtteri Bottas)

Announced today by SBT GRVL…a partnership w/ Bottas to bring a gravel race to Finland.

Having done The Rift last year in Iceland, and being a convert to F1 over the last few years, this may have to go on the list.

This is really cool. I remember on an episode of drive to survive, they were at his garage at home and he had a few Canyons in there. Didn’t realize there was more to it than just liking to bike here and there!

He is dating Tiffany Cromwell and has done SBT GRVL (red course) the last 2 years and finished in the Top 5.

Briefly talked to him this year in SBT…super nice guy, vey low key. I don’t fanboi over much, but that was pretty cool.

What’s with removing letters from a word in ALL CAPS and calling it a bike race? Stop the discrimination against vowels, I think that’s something with which we can all get on board.

He totally seems like the kind of “celebrity” that just wants to hang out and drink cheap beer with the boys.

People underestimate racing drivers. They’re professional athletes and train damn hard. Not even remotely shocking he can ride at this level. Looks like we know his F1 retirement plans! Haha

It’s Wahoo appropriation and I won’t stand for it! Haha

Registration secured!!! :tada::tada::tada:

Can’t wait for this next year…should be awesome.

Registration is still open if anyone is interested.


Race is this weekend…we fly out on Wednesday, land Thursday afternoon. Then taking the train up to Lahti.

Really excited for this…not quite in the form I was hoping for, but good enough to hopefully ride a decent tempo all day. Besides, spending the day with my tongue in my spokes and not taking in all the beauty seems kinda dumb.

Will probably do the Friday afternoon shakeout ride…

If you see a guy in ENVE kit riding an Aspero, say “Hi!”
