Fron the ToG Race Director:
Men’s A race expanded to Cat 1,2,3;
Registration for the 2013 SRAM Tour of the Gila has been extremely positive and it looks like we’re in for a fantastic race this year! We are thrilled that the Master Men B race is already full after only two weeks. However, we may have made an error in not originally opening the Master Men A race to Cat 3 riders. The Master Men A Race opened today to Cat 3’s. The five-day Master Men A race includes Stage 1 from Silver City to Mogollon. Initially we were concerned that Cat 3’s would not be competitive alongside Cat 1 and 2 riders. After speaking with several Cat 3 men, we realize we may have underestimated their ability and we apologize. Cat 3 Master Men can now enter the Master Men A race for $140, and Cat 3 Men who have already entered the B race and would like to upgrade to the A race can do so for an additional $25. If you would like to make this change, contact Jack at [email protected]
