Gravel is taking the world of drop bar bikes by storm. However, every time we release a video about gravel cycling, we get dozens of comments asking 'Why don't you just get an XC mountain bike?!'. Well, in this video, we've done just that! With the help of GMBN's Rich Payne, we're unleashing GCN's own crash test dummy, Hank, on the trails to see if roadies are any good at mountain biking!
