Watch: Mountain Bike VS Gravel Bike – Which Is Faster?

We take on GCN for a mountain bike vs gravel bike battle at the legendary Dolomiti Superbike race in Italy.

Who will win? Comment GMBN or GCN with your predictions…

Neil Donoghue and GCN’s Simon Richardson are both former mountain bike pros, albeit in different disciplines. So, we though that they should have a race. Not just any race, though.

The Dolomiti Superbike was one of the first mountain bike marathons, and began 23 years ago. The course is a tough mix of fire road, road and Alpine singletrack. Terrain, that, in theory, makes the race perfect for an XC bike. Something like Neil’s Canyon Exceed. What about the latest thing in road cycling, though.. Gravel bikes. The course also sounds kind of perfect for those bikes, too, right?
