This photo from Payson McElveen's insta says it all . . . it looks like an absolutely brutal day of thick peanut butter mud at the Mid South Gravel Race in Stillwater Oklahoma on Saturday. Payson's strategy on such a muddy day was to take care of his drivetrain. He said "I almost tried not to pedal hard and I stopped shifting. It was mostly just by necessity." He beat other gravel stalwarts Colin Strickland & Pete Stetina. Congrats Payson!
