Nannup: Finding gravel gold in Western Australia at UCI Gravel World Series

Nannup, in the south-west of Western Australia almost looks like it had a pitch for a world-class gravel event firmly in mind when it was designing its shire website, with the prominent placement of the statistic that of its 536km of roads, 387km were unsealed.

That meant plenty of choice when the race organisers of Seven started to survey the terrain of Blackwood Valley for the gravel event which this Sunday May 15 will be home to the second round of the new Trek UCI Gravel World Series. Throw in trails and forestry roads as well and the choices seemed endless, with the triangle connecting the townships of Nannup, Bridgetown and Donnybrook estimated to have in excess of 1,000km of rideable roads and trails.
