Be Crowned King of the Mountains

Speed, intense summer heat and long, steep hills combine to make this the most punishing of the Le Triple Crown routes.  The fastest climber in our designated segment of this 42-mile hammerfest, will win the coveted men’s and women’s titles of Bicycle Sport Shop, King of the Mountains. Winners will receive lots of accolades, recognition on our Facebook page, the satisfaction of beating all their friends, and a Bicycle Sport Shop gift card. We’ll celebrate your strong finish with breakfast tacos, Real Ale beer, special Titos’ “Triple Crown Cocktails” and non-alcoholic drinks.
