This time last year Adam Blazevic was lining up one of the very first races of the UCI Gravel World Series in Nannup, Western Australia as a relative unknown, perhaps a little underestimated, and uncertain just what this foray into gravel racing would bring. Much has changed in 12 months, not just for the Australian rider but also for the series. 

The series has stepped up to a new level in 2023, confirming its place in the race calendar with more and more fop riders stepping into the fray as well as more and more organisers putting their hands up to be included in the event. Blazevic too has now become a more established presence, parlaying an initial victory at the SEVEN gravel race in Nannup into a powerful opening year on the international gravel racing scene.
