This fall, Tour of the Gila 2021!

Become Gila Proven this 2021. Enjoy the return of one of the most exciting and challenging cycling events in North America!

I am so excited that the Tour of the Gila is happening this Fall!!!  Our race dates are September 29 – October 3.  I am sure all of you are training hard to be the best you can at Gila.  I am working as hard as I can to get everything up and running so we all will have a great race.

Fall is such an incredibly beautiful time of the year in southwest New Mexico.  Day time highs are in the mid-70’s and the winds are usually mild.  This fall weather makes for great riding conditions.

I want to let you know that I am taking COVID-19 seriously.  I hope you are too.  The best thing we all can do, to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe, is to get vaccinated.

I am pleased to let you know that I am working with one of our sponsors, Hidalgo Medical Services, and their CEO, Dan Otero, to develop our COVID-19 Protocol Safety Plan so we all will have a safe and rememberable Gila.

We are now a little more than a month from the start of Gila.  I am looking forward to seeing a lot of old friends and making a lot of new ones.

Take care, train hard, and see you at the end of September.
