Newly retired four-time Tour de France stage winner Luis León Sánchez is the latest WorldTour rider to find a new home – and indeed find success – on the gravelly stuff. Sánchez, riding for the Murcia Cycling Federation, as opposed to the Astana Qazaqstan colours he could be found in last season, was victorious in the 114 Gravel Race in Badajoz, south-west Spain on Saturday (March 23).

He outsprinted pro mountain biker Pablo Rodgríguez Guede at the end of the 130km race. The women’s winner was Lucía González (Bizkaia Durango).
