Important Information for Men 1,2 and Master Men A Racers

For the most recent Tour of the Gila, only 27 Men 1,2 racers and 26 Master Men A racers competed.  We simply need more racers in each field to make each race viable.  We have decided that if there are not more racers in each category by March 15, 2023, then we will combine the two categories.  If we do combine the two categories, you will be racing together.  But we will be scoring each category separately and will be awarding leader jerseys and prize money separately.  We are hoping to get 45 Men 1,2 racers and 35 Master Men A racers registered by March 15th.  Please reach out to your fellow racers and encourage them to be a part of the 2023 Tour of the Gila. 

SWAG BAGS:

At packet pick-up, every racer will be receiving a 2023 Tour of the Gila Swag Bag that will include a 2023 Tour of the Gila T-Shirt, a 2023 Tour of the Gila Beer Glass and Coaster, and a 2023 Tour of the Gila Poster.
