By now we hope everyone has heard about the notorious race called the Belgian Waffle Ride. What you may not have known is that road/gravel race has grown beyond its SoCal roots and is now a nationwide series. Next in line is their BWR Utah event on September 23-24.
BELGIAN WAFFLE RIDE UTAH
Now in its third year of pedaling perversity, we’ve decided to upgrade the Unroad experience here with new course features that are sure to surprise and delight. Three distinct course changes will add a truly fun dynamic to this gravel experience.
The Three Peaks Recreational Area offers us some incredible new options for flowy single track that laces its way through Juniper and Pinion trees. This Drie Toppen detour, Instead of joining the road after the ever exasperating Als stroop een zandheuvel opduwen sector, will allow riders a chance to enjoy 8-miles of well groomed single track goes over granite stones, ladder bridges and decomposed granite trails. It’s fast and fun, and an incredible addition to this year’s course, but not the only one…
Of course, we are still offering the most notorious sector, the Tolgweg (watch the video here), which comes after the most brutal climb go the day up the Muur van Kanarraberg, but we’ve also added more whoops and motocross trails to give riders a break from the gravel slogs and mix it up with technical, fun, swopping turns, the likes of which cant be found anywhere else.
We can’t tell you about the other new sector but just imagine the sound of BRAAAPPP and twists and turns, whoops and berms. This year’s course is sure to be the most celebrated with the most riders ever.
