THE ULTIMATE COMPETITION FOR THE ULTIMATE MOUNTAIN ATHLETE
– 2021 Triple Crown –
We’re hopeful the GT Triple Crown competition will be back in play for 2021.
However, because the fate of 2021 Ski race remains uncertain at this time, our 2021 Triple Crown Series too remains up in the air.
The majority of 2021 Ski event capacity is pre-booked from 2020 deferments, greatly limiting any remaining capacity
for new team registration into the Ski race. Due to this fact, we will not be offering a ‘Triple Crown Priority Entry’ into the Ski event this season.
Since it’s inception in 2015, the Grand Traverse Triple Crown has rapidly developed into a preeminent multi-sport / multi-season endurance challenge.
With it’s legacy firmly planted as North America’s toughest point-to-point ski race, the GT Triple Crown defines a new generation of mountain sports competition. A singular test of three pinnacle mountain disciplines, Ski-Run-MTB, will challenge both individual perseverance, while also demanding concerted team strategizing in the first race stage – the ski to Aspen.
Customarily during the month of October we offer a priority registration into the Ski race, afforded to the first 25 athletes who consign themselves to competing in the Triple Crown Series for that calendar year. These athletes not only secure a Team slot into that year’s Ski race, but additionally secure their individual registration for both Summer GT events.
Must I register in October to be a competitor in the Triple Crown Series?
No, but entry into the Ski race can be challenging as General Registration sells out rapidly on December 1st.
Any athlete who receives a qualified 2021 Ski finish time may opt to further enroll in the summer events, thereby becoming an eligible Triple Crown Contender. (Ski race finishers may enter into summer events by registering through either online Summer GT registration, entering as a Dual Sport competitor, anytime leading up to summer races.)
Do both Ski teammates have to enter themselves into the Triple Crown to receive priority entry into the Winter event?
No. As long as one teammate commits to competing in the Triple Crown through the October priority registration, this individual will have secured a team entry into the 2020 Ski event.
