Tiffany Cromwell, Tasman Nankervis win Australia’s Nannup Gravel World Series race

Australia farewells one World Championships and gains another

Tiffany Cromwell (Canyon-SRAM) and Tasman Nankervis (BMC Shimano) become the two latest names added to the list of UCI Gravel World Series victors on Saturday, both sweeping over the line well ahead of their nearest rivals to celebrate on the finish line of SEVEN in Nannup, Western Australia.

The Women’s WorldTour racer, who opened her gravel season at the race, finished the 125km race with more than 3,200m of ascent in just under five hours and around 12 minutes later Western Australian rider Cassia Boglio (DRG Knights Liv) crossed the line to take second. Her teammate and D2022 Dirty Warrny winner, Courtney Sherwell, came third.

In the men’s category, Nankervis shook off his rivals by first using his mountain bike skills to stretch the elastic on the tricky descents and then took off solo from a select lead group on a climb in the second half of the race. He came over the line with a speedy finishing time of 4:16:44.
