The 2024 Tripel Crown of Gravel Explained

The Tripel Crown of Gravel Series Explained

Monuments of Cycling (MoC) is excited to deliver an entirely new approach to the Tripel Crown of Gravel Series, which will kick off the2024 Belgian Waffle Ride Series in full-blown Spring Classic mode, Americana style, with three grand events all taking place within seven weeks.

The Tripel Crown will feature the Second Annual BWR Arizona (March 2), the Fifth Annual BWR Utah (April 6), and culminate with the grandaddy of them all, the 13th Annual BWR California (April 28). 

The Tripel Crown of Gravel Series has been recreated to give riders, both professional and amateur alike, the chance to compete in three very different environments over a short period of time, offering the perfect blend between recovery and fitness gains for the early season competition. The Tripel Crown will be contested for both Waffle and Wafer distances in a points-based omnium format, for professionals and age-group riders alike. Riders competing for the Tripel Crown honors and prize purse (for pros only) will be scored based on the total points achieved over the three races. The BWR CA will carry extra weighted points to complete the series, which is being contested at North City in San Marcos, CA, April 28, 2024. There will be prize purses and prizes for the Male, Female, and Gender Diverse categories. Registration for the Tripel Crown and individuals events will open on Monday, October 16, 2023, at 8:00 a.m. PST. 






Created as an extremely challenging race in the spirit of the great European one-day Spring Classics, the BWRs have now become known as the most unique cycling events in the world for their incredibly dynamic, multi-surface ‘unroad’ parcourses replete with single track, gravel, sand, rocks, gravel, water crossings, cyclocross features and even some asphalt.
