King's Cup - British Gravel Championship

West Stow, Suffolk, England

Trails - Loop

The British Gravel Championship Race is the biggest challenge of the King’s Cup Gravel Festival weekend. Filmed during the 2022 event, this is two laps of the 15km circuit. The King’s Cup’s signature gravel, common throughout the circuit will remind you of Strade Bianche, the beautiful Italian classic race held in the Tuscan hills each spring, as it’ll leave your tyres white and bike covered in thick dust. You won’t see any Cypress trees here though, there’s no significant climbing. Expect each of the two laps to cover a wide array of riding surfaces from white to golden brown and back to white gravel tracks. There’s some grassy track and even a tiny bit of sand. The King’s Cup race route has a bit of everything. Varying surfaces, it’s narrow in places, wide in others, technical in parts, fast elsewhere. And the winner is a worthy champion.
