SILVER CITY, New Mexico (December 6, 2022) — The three-stage Virtual Tour of the Gila will be happening December 16, 17, and 18, 2022. People who wish to watch pro road cyclists compete while riding their trainers can watch via any device online by going to TouroftheGila.com. There is no cost to watch the races.

The Virtual Tour of the Gila is a part of the Echelon Racing League using modified, virtual versions of the in-real-life courses. The Echelon Racing League features men’s and women’s teams from across North America, as well as select esports and international teams.

The Echelon Racing League will be on the virtual platform RGT Cycling. What is unique about RGT is that they have the capability of making virtual versions of our real Tour of the Gila racecourses. GPX files of our 3 race courses, the Tyrone Individual Time Trial, the Mogollon Road Race, and the Gila Monster Road Race, were created and sent to RGT.

“The folks at RGT created our in-real-life racecourses onto their cycling platform,” explained Jack Brennan, Tour of the Gila Race Director. “When the Pro Men and Pro Women race the Virtual Tour of the Gila, they will be actually racing and experiencing, on-line, the road profiles that make up our Tour of the Gila. That is really cool!”
