When Carolin Schiff claimed victory in the women's 200-mile race of the 2023 Garmin Unbound Gravel presented by Craft, it was an epic solo effort for the last few hours of the race that delivered a stunning solo win for the German rider. 

On taking the win, Schiff said "I did not always believe that there was a big gap. To finish is to finish and just push because anything can happen. I love gravel racing! I found my spot, I think."
