Your Golden Tour hosts:

Roope Nurmi - A lifelong cyclist from Finland with worldwide racing experience, now focused on supporting other riders as a bike mechanic. He has swapped the chillier climate of Finland for the warmer weather of Girona, enjoying cycling culture and breathtaking routes with his friends and family. Roope wants to share and enjoy the best gravel in the region with you. 

Jay McCarthy - Jay, originally from Australia, has been living in Europe for 12 years of which the majority was spent racing in the pro peloton. After retiring from the pro road peloton due the injury, Jay enjoyed some time away from cycling. Gravel riding made him rediscover his passion for cycling while exploring and discovering a whole new side of his old training grounds in Girona. Jay can’t wait to share the trails, racing stories and cold post-ride beers with you!
