FASTEST UNBOUND WINNER EVER

So proud to be the first non-american winner in the fastest time ever of the Unbound in 2022! I felt strong on the Wilier Triestina Rave machine and it was great to finish it off in a sprint with 4 fellow riders. “I am so happy. It was my big goal and I succeeded in my first year as a professional gravel rider after winning The Traka. It was super cool to finish it off in a sprint of five.”

THROWBACK TO 2022-2023

Over the past two years, after my victory in Unbound, I have achieved several great results in the international gravel and beach competitions in Europe and the United States. For Wilier, my races were covered by their content team. This resulted in fantastic atmospheric impressions, such as at the Rift Gravel Race in Iceland.
