Acronym alert:

GCN swung by the Fort Collins HQ of Niner bikes, to check out 9r's new full suspension gravel bike, the MCR and the updated ridged gravel bike, the RLT. On August 14th, former pro and Global Cycling Network presenter, Simon Richardson took both the Magic Carpet Ride and the Road Less Traveled out to Pineridge to review each bike and to see which one was faster on the mixed terrain around Dixon Reservoir.  You can see the review and the time trials in the video below or on their YouTube channel. Richardson took a KOM and a couple of 2nds while he was out there. You can review his route here: https://www.strava.com/activities/2619136434

After riding in Fort Collins, Richardson took part in the SBT GRVL race on August 18th in Steamboat Springs.
