Tiffany Cromwell doesn't consider herself to be a pioneer of gravel riding but she aims to bring her competitive edge to the popular off-road discipline in a 10-event gravel racing calendar that tentatively includes Unbound, The Rift, and a few events that are part of the Belgian Waffle.

In an interview with Cyclingnews, Cromwell spoke candidly about her desire to breathe new energy into her racing career, that began more than 10 years ago, and that gravel racing ticked the boxes when it came to her and Canyon-SRAM's ambitions.
