Bike Check! Swiss Cross does Lost & Found gravel ride

Ritchey Swiss Cross gravel bike check. View more about the new gravel bike that's also a ripping cross bike. 

Lost and Found is a gravel race which occurs in the high Sierra town of Portola, California. The course consists of over 100 miles of loosley managed forrest service roads that climb over the mountains of the Plumas National Forrest which surround the serene waters of Lake Davis for a modest elevation gain of 8000 feet. In the past, tempteratures have ranged from dry and dusty sweltering 90+ degree weather to this year's comfortable upper 60's. The recent lingering winter aided in producing tacky hero dirt conditions ripe for fast confident descents with aero-tuckable rolling valley dirt roads that felt endless yet dreamy. What better conditions to rip the updated Swiss Cross and let loose as it was meant to be.
