The 33rd edition of the Tour of the Gila will take place May 1-5, 2019. This is one of the most challenging stage races in North America.   

Registration now closed, but the link to Bike Reg (below) will show who is registered.

 

 

REGISTRATION: (Now Closed, except citizen’s races, which can be located under the “Citizen Race” tab) 

As an incentive to get more teams to Silver City, we are offering a 10% discount on entries of 5 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 10% discount.  You will receive your discount check at registration.  There is only one restriction to this program.  If you or team member enters on Nov 23rd, Black Friday Discount Day, your entry will count towards your team’s total entry number, but you will not receive the additional 10% discount.

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 2019 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 May 4th, 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 2019 Tour of the Gila Swag Bag that will
include a 2019 Tour of the Gila T-Shirt, a 2019 Tour of the Gila Pint Beer Glass and
2019 Tour of the Gila Poster.
