Escape the Daily Grind With This Race Founder-Guided Gravel Tour

Escape your typical neighborhood street ride, escape work, escape the daily grind, and explore somewhere new with this SCOTT Sports film.

Follow along with pro cyclist Carlos Mazón and SCOTT Sports employee Janosch Wintermantel as they gravel ride through the Badlands near Granada, Spain. Sound fun? It sure looks like it.

If you had to name the most epic gravel race in Europe, Badlands probably comes to mind. The 450-mile/752km unsupported ride isn’t for the unprepared or faint of heart — though it is full of gorgeous and remote scenery. And it’s got lots and lots of desert gravel, as the route crosses Europe’s Gorafe and Tabernas Deserts.

In this feature film, hear directly from Carlos Mazón — the founder of the Badlands gravel race — about the race and more.

The Badlands race is already sold out for 2021. But, it’s never too early to get hyped for racing next year.
