Going toe to toe with cyclists like WorldTour veteran Nathan Haas and Paris-Roubaix winner Niki Terpstra may not have been something Adam Blazevic was expecting this time last year, but the introduction of the Trek UCI Gravel World Series changed all that.

The 23-year-old Australian had made a habit of ranging across the disciplines ever since he started racing as a 10 year old, so there was no surprises in seeing him on the entry list for the second race in the new gravel series during May in Nannup, Western Australia.
