Registration opens on Tuesday, October 24th, for the Lost and Found Gravel Festival, presented by Cervélo, a multi-distance gravel race and expo held in the heart of northern California’s Lost Sierra region.
The race takes place on Saturday, June 15, 2024, and will once again offer three distances: 35, 60 or 100 miles for categories including pro, junior, singlespeed, age group, open and pedal-assist, as well as a cycling team category. New this year, Lost & Found is also offering a Para Cycling category for each distance and division. It is capped at 1,500 riders. There will also be three new timed segments scattered throughout the courses: the 1.2-mile Grizzly Grind at mile 8.5, the 2.8-mile Crocker Cruise rolling pavement section at mile 11.6 and the 2.8-mile Dotta Downhill gravel descent at the tail end of each course.
Lost and Found starts and ends in Portola, a small town in California’s Plumas County in the northeastern Sierra mountains, surrounded by hundreds of miles of Forest Service gravel roads. All three courses begin at nearly 5,000 feet in elevation and offer a rugged backcountry experience, winding racers through ranchlands, forested valleys, and canyons set against the backdrop of High-Sierra peaks, fields of wildflowers, and mountain lakes. Check out the Route maps and elevation profiles for the 2024 race.

Le Coursier can be translated loosely as both a bicycle messenger and a cyclist. It goes some way to describing how Marin de Saint-Exupéry spends his life outside on his bike, working as a courier and riding long distance races.
We followed Marin over the course of 2023, to understand more about an individual who has become known and admired in the ultra-distance bike racing community for the unique way he approaches the sport.
Le Coursier is a story about living life on the bike, and how sometimes as cyclists we set ourselves goals that can end up meaning we lose sight of why we choose to ride.
In August 2023 Brendan rode his gravel bike across the state of Wisconsin in two days with about 800 other riders. It was the longest ride he’d ever done, and it changed his perspective on his own capabilities and what it means to have fun on a bike!
