The Tour of the Gila has attracted competitive cyclists both amateur and professional from around the world. Our race has been committed year after year to give opportunities for aspiring cyclists to participate on much of the same course and terrain as the UCI professional men and women.
Os Assem traveled overseas from the UK in 2016 to participate in his first Tour of the Gila on a recommendation from a friend. “Never before have I taken part in a race with so many categories catered for,” Assem said. “Each level of racer was treated equally, regardless of category, making all riders feel they were an integral participant in the Tour of the Gila. Rubbing shoulders with the UCI riders, while being able to be competitive at my own level, is something no other race offers.”
The Tour of the Gila thanks you for your continued support and participation of our race and wishes all our racers the best of luck in achieving their athletic goals.
