On October 19, 2019 in Santa Barbara, California, riders of all levels will compete for global supremacy at the Hillclimb World Championships on Gibraltar Road, a climb made famous by the Amgen Tour of California. World & American Champions will be crowned for Pros & Amateur Age Groups.

Known as the American Riviera, Santa Barbara offers a gorgeous backdrop for a world-class event. It’s a great place for cycling, with temperatures staying between 50 and 80º year-round, but bring the family to enjoy the beautiful beaches, iconic architecture and award-winning wine country.

Gibraltar Road in Santa Barbara is famous for its amazing scenery, but more known to cyclists as a battleground for big names at the Amgen Tour of California. Gibraltar made a glorious backdrop for the first-ever Hillclimb World Championships in 2018, where riders of all abilities suffered for fun, prizes, and glory, to compare their times against the best in the world.

Your friends, family & club members can cheer you on at dedicated spectator zones featuring music, entertainment & more!
