In our new series we feature three special episodes that all took place in Steamboat Springs Colorado during the inaugural SBT GRVL event. During the event, we partnered with Chamois Butt’r and chatted with three of the participants. We boarded the Chamois Butt’r Jeep and drove the scenic terrain of Steamboat Springs while getting to know the riders.

In our next episode we chat with Sarah Sturm. While new to the gravel scene, she has made her presence known winning her first event, the Belgian Waffle Ride. She resides in Durango Colorado, a hotbed for mountain biking and outdoor activities. Sarah splits her time between cycling and working as a graphic designer for several brands including a wine brand and cannabis company.

Athletically, Sarah started out in high school playing soccer, running and swimming. By the time she went to college at Fort Lewis College in Durango, she had joined the Triathlete squad and then transitioned to road cycling. Eventually Sarah found she had a knack for cyclocross where she competed at high level before gravel.

Off the bike, Sarah likes to do things in her own way and on her own terms. She is unapologetically in it for the fun and does not conform to any cycling stereotypes. She rides hard on long and on those long days, she thinks about everything and nothing. Sarah has found a place in long grueling events and there are no signs of her slowing down. The day after we recorded, she rode to an impressive third place at the SBT GRVL race behind two seasoned pros. What is striking is Sarah’s positivity and her endless energy and laughter. Your day is about to get a whole lot better once you listen to Sarah!
