Last month, Ted King won the Swamp Fox Gravel Fondo in South Carolina. Not only was the event more than 170-miles, but it also started at 11 p.m., making for an atypical race and pre-race routine.
In his latest YouTube video, King documents the trip he took with his wife and daughter from their home in Vermont to the race in South Carolina, a journey of about 1,000-miles down the East Coast of the United States.
After the race in South Carolina, the trio headed to Asheville, North Carolina before competing in a Southeast Gravel Series race. Laura King also competed in both events, riding to a second-place finish at the Southeast Gravel series race.
