2015 California Triple Crown Stage Race Announced

The California Triple Crown Stage Race was started in 1996 to add a competition to the top end of the California Triple Crown Double Century series.  This is how the Stage Race works: Riders have to complete three of the most difficult Doubles in the California Triple Crown Double Century series.  The Total Elapsed Time from each of these grueling Doubles is then added together and the rider with the fastest overall time for all Three Doubles wins the Stage Race.  If you ride any Stage on a tandem, you must ride all three Stages on a tandem with the same partner.

We tip our helmets to each of the 39 finishers who tackled the HUGE challenge of completing the Central Coast Double, the Heartbreak Double, and the Mt. Tam Double.
