Interview: Eddie Anderson about Gravel Biking
Team Alpecin-Fenix is breaking new ground in the 2021 season. In addition to road cycling, mountain biking and cyclocross, the team also wants to be successful in gravel races. For this purpose, 22-year-old Eddie Anderson was signed up. The US-American is expected to compete in prestigious gravel events such as Dirty Kanza, Belgian Waffle Ride and Barry Roubaix.
He’s already flashed his talent for this discipline in 2019 when he was only beaten by former WorldTour pro Peter Stetina in the Belgian Waffle Ride, finishing second, just ten seconds behind. Anderson is not only comfortable on gravel, but also on the road – which he proved by a top ten result at the 2020 Baby Giro. Alpecin Cycling spoke with the Californian about the fascination of gravel biking.
