The 35th edition of the Tour of the Gila will take place September 29 – October 3, 2021.. This is one of the most challenging stage races in North America.

Registration for the 2021 Tour of the Gila is OPEN!

 

Tour of the Gila invites amateurs to race the stages.  If you bring an amateur team, Tour of the Gila has an incentive to get more teams to Silver City. We are offering a 5% discount on entries of 5 or more team members. We are also offering a 10% discount on entries of 15 or more team members.  Here is how this program will work: you will select the race that you want to enter and will pay the appropriate entry fee. Once 5 members of your team has entered, then your team will be eligible to receive your 5% discount.  Then once 15 members of your team has entered, your team will be eligible to receive your 10% discount.  You will receive your discount check at registration. There is only one restriction to this program. 

Another thing that we plan on doing is to recognize the team that brings the largest number of team members. We will be presenting each team member a commemorative 2021 Tour of the Gila t-shirt. On the front of the t-shirt will be the Tour of the Gila logo. And on the back will be your team’s name and logo and words acknowledging that your team has the largest number of riders at the race. T-shirts will be presented, and your team will be recognized during the Downtown Criterium on October 2nd, right before the start of the UCI Men’s Criterium at 4:15pm.

SWAG BAGS:

At packet pick-up, every racer will be receiving a 2021 Tour of the Gila Swag Bag that will include a 2021 Tour of the Gila T-Shirt, a 2021 Tour of the Gila Beer Glass and Coaster, and a 2021 Tour of the Gila Poster.
