197: From Soigneur to Gravel Pro with Geerike Schreurs (Episode 182)

In this Episode

Geerike “Gee” Schruers was a soigneur on the women’s pro tour for over 10 years, taking care of some of the best riders in the world to help them perform at their best. However, last year she was tempted by the growing gravel scene, and made the jump to professional racing herself. Gee joined up with Specialized and is the only Specialized/SD Worx rider that focuses solely on gravel. She tells us about joining up with the rest of the road team for her very first training camp, and what she learned from her years as a soigneur that she is now applying to her own training and racing. Gee finished second at Unbound 2024 in an historic 9 women sprint to the finish line after 200 miles of some of the best and most dynamic women’s gravel racing we have ever seen. She outlines her plans for the rest of the season, and talks about where she thinks women’s cycling is heading in the future.
