I have ridden for days on gravel. Now wet clay that is different. The RS is stable enough. I have also gone though, and down hills on walking tracks. On an RT I have maintained top speed in gravel. It slides a bit but you get used to it. Have not gone over 140kph on the RS in gravel because of wild life popping out. Part of my training course was riding a road bike on wet clay, snow and lots of gravel.
But with the wheels we have? Stay away from rocks that will bend your rim, likewise deep holes.
