Got what it takes?
dark:30 sports is committed to producing challenging premium cycling events. In 2013 we unveiled the Oregon Triple Crown, an innovative series of only-in-Oregon cycling experiences.
The 2014 Oregon Triple Crown Series includes the long courses of three classic dark:30 sports events: the Gran route at the Oregon Gran Fondo (June 1, Cottage Grove), the Alpine route at the Tour of Aufderheide (July 13, Westfir), and the Abomination route at the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic (August 23, Waldport/Yachats).
We will be recognizing those cyclists who commit now and are then able to finish all three of these courses in the 2014 Series. By registering now (click the “Register Now” button below) you will receive special pricing on all three events an you will be automatically registered to ride the long courses at all three events. YOU MUST REGISTER BEFORE MAY 24, 2014 TO QUALIFY FOR THE SERIES.
These rides are among the most challenging in Oregon and require more than 290 miles of hard cycling and 21,000+ feet of climbing. Those who are up to the challenge of finishing all three long courses in 2014 Series win title, jersey and the lifetime benefits accorded Oregon Triple Crown Series honorees . We reward and honor those who commit now and are then able to do the deed.
In 2013 this honor was bestowed upon six hardy cyclists who literally “rode their way” to distinction and a jersey very few will ever obtain. Is this the year that YOU can ride into yours?
