Colin Strickland didn’t grow up cycling, but that sure didn’t stop him from bursting onto the scene and quickly making a name for himself.
Now a legend in the burgeoning gravel racing world, he’s working with Red Bull to host the inaugural Red Bull Rio Grande Gravel race in May 2022. We caught up with Colin to see how the event came to be, get a little course intel, and hear how about his bike setup, race day nutrition, and more! Colin Strickland follows Payson McElveen through the Texas desert on a recon ride.
