Welkom to the second stop of the Belgian Waffle Ride Tripel Crown of Gravel Series…

This is the fifth edition of the Cedar City event. We're excited to offer something completely different with the Cedar City location and give riders a chance to race on a gravel, sand, and rock route, at altitude, against some of the best cyclists from the road, gravel, MTB and unroad scenes. We have created a new route that won’t have crazy single-track sectors, but will offer a dynamic array of different, but ‘rippable’ unroad spiciness.

Cedar City has always been incredibly inviting and accommodating of the event’s needs and will really roll out the red, yellow, and black carpet for us. This year, we are excited to be able to offer the essential elements of a proper BWR with waffles, cycling in its extreme and beer from Rouleur Brewing Company... We will also have a pre-race gathering, on Friday night before the race, and on race day we all will feast on Belgian waffles, a delectable unroad course, and more Belgian waffles, plus some Belgian ale.

The BWR Utah, the Hell of the South (West), has a parcourse that is quite the juxtaposition to the ones run in California or elsewhere. The only Euro-style Spring Classic on American soil, the BWR CA is a Road Race punctuated by two dozen unroad sectors (read: dirt for 55-miles) over roughly 137-miles and 11,000 feet of climbing. Like last year, the Utah BWR in Cedar City will be an Unroad Race of 128-miles broken up with roughly nine road sectors and much less the climbing of San Diego at ~7,500 feet. Regardless of the vital stats, the BWR Utah race will offer up the same type of insanity, challenge and the unparalleled experience that has made the BWR notorious and noteworthy.

As the second stop on the Tripel Crown calendar, the BWR Utah edition will draw world-class cyclists from around the globe... including numerous former WorldTour riders, defending champions from BWR CA, and many more just to partake of the unique challenge of the day. Riders coming to win will have their work cut out for them. And riders of all abilities will tackle the same course at the same time after the start gun goes off and an initial neutral section of four miles is completed. The Wafer and Wanna Rides will start with the Waffle Ride and will traverse courses like the 2023 routes- 81- and 43-miles - the beginning of which are on the Waffle course.
