WATCH: TEAM ORANGE SEAL TALKS GRAVEL TIPS

While traipsing through the expo at the Belgian Waffle Ride, we had the good fortune to find Team Orange Seal riders;  Payson Mcelveen, Cole Paton, Hannah Finchcamp, and Savilia Bunk sitting under the team tent talking about the course and both the race tactics and tire setup that they thought would work best.

Just as we got started, fellow Orange Seal supported rider (and former Unbound Gravel winner) Colin Strickland dropped in for a cameo appearance to give his best advice the the first-timers. Payson would end up finishing fifth with Cole Paton rolling in at 9th and Strickland finishing 19th.

Team Orange Seal rider Camila Bunk finished fifth in her first gravel race.
