The location

Watersley Gravel Challenge takes place in and around Watersley. The center for talent development. The ideal base for a true gravel tour. We take you over a balanced mix of paved and unpaved, flat and hilly, fast and technical, social and competitive routes. Choose your distance: 40 km or 100 km. Both loops have an extensive food station.

The start and finish location is at the top of Watersley Sports & Talentpark. Sport is what drives Watersley. It is the glue between everything the area has to offer. We do this for anyone who finds sports interesting. Whether you practice it or enjoy watching it. Watersley is a unique place in that it is directly connected to nature. Everyone gets energy from that. Whether you stay here to recover and catch your breath. Whether you come because you have to be in the area or to return home with new dreams.



To add some extra spice to the Watersley Gravel Challenge we have time registration in selected sections.
Officially it's not a race, but it will tell you how fast you are tracking on these sections and you can compare your time with the talents and pros.

  • We added four sections with time registration in Strava, totalling ... kilometers. Discover the sections here!
