dark30 sports is committed to producing challenging premium cycling events. In 2013 we unveiled Oregon Triple Crown, an innovative series of only-in-Oregon cycling experiences.
The 2014 Oregon Triple Crown includes the long courses of three classic events: the Gran route at the Oregon Gran Fondo (June 1), the Alpine route at the Tour of Aufderheide (June 15), and the Abomination route at the Oregon Coast Gravel Epic (August 23).
These rides are among the most challenging in Oregon including more than 290 miles of riding and a combined 21,000+ feet of elevation gain. Those who are up to the challenge of finishing all three long courses in the same year win title and prizes as Oregon Triple Crown bearers.
We will be recognizing the hearty cyclists who commit now and are then able to finish all three of these courses in a calendar year. You need to sign up for this challenge by riding the Gran route at Oregon Gran Fondo, the Alpine route at Tour of Aufderheide, and registering by June 14, 2014 before you ride the Alpine Course at the Tour of Aufderheide.
(Stay tuned! Registration opening soon.)
Here’s why you want to register for the Oregon Triple Crown series. And here’s what comes with completing the the three long courses at each Oregon Triple Crown series event:
- A by-name-only limited edition, custom-designed “Oregon Triple Crown” cycling jersey. NOBODY gets this jersey unless they are confirmed finishers on all three of the long courses in the same calendar year. (The jersey shown below was awarded to the 2013 Oregon Triple Crown inductees.)
- Your name listed (forever almost) on the Oregon Triple Crown “Page of Honor” for each year that you win the coveted status of a three-course finisher.
- And last but not least, a personal invitation to an Oregon Triple Crown “members and partners-only” social hosted by dark30 sports at the Oakshire Public House in Eugene.
