On the morning of June 4, the starting gun will sound and thousands of riders will set off. Every rider there will be hoping to finish the 2022 Unbound gravel race, and one of those will be Nathan Haas, atop a completely unique Colnago G3-X.

Haas perhaps needs no introduction, for the last ten years, he's been road racing professionally. His road UCI World Tour debut came in 2012 with the Garmin-Barracuda team and continued until the end of 2021 when he retired after a stint at Cofidis. The retirement wasn't an end to a professional career though. Instead, it was a return to his roots of off-road racing. Rather than returning to the mountain biking that brought him early success, he has followed the likes of Pete Stetina and Ian Boswell into the world of gravel racing, with the backing of Campagnolo, Deda and Colnago.

Josh hails from the Pacific Northwest of the United States but would prefer riding through the desert than the rain. He will happily talk for hours about the minutiae of cycling tech but also has an understanding that most people just want things to work. He is a road cyclist at heart and doesn't care much if those roads are paved, dirt, or digital. Although he rarely races, if you ask him to ride from sunrise to sunset the answer will be yes.
