olympian and reigning queen of gravel

Sofia Gomez Villafane is the reigning "Queen of Gravel." A scrappy Argentinian mountain biker with a confident spirit, Villafane comes to every race with the very clear goal of winning. At 2022 Unbound Gravel, she shocked the gravel world with a dominant win on a rain-soaked muddy course. She finished just off the top spot on the podium at the Life Time Grand Prix. In her first race of the 2023 at the inaugural 2023 Belgian Waffle Ride Scottsdale, the gutsy rider dropped the hammer with 40 miles to go, decimating the stacked women's field in convincing fashion. If this is a sign of what's to come in 2023 - all eyes will be on Sofia Gomez Villafane!
