Wrapping up another epic San Diego BWR last weekend also marked the end of the 2024 Tripel Crown of Gravel series, where we proudly served as the official bag sponsor for the third year in a row.This year we took our collaborative efforts to a new level by designing an entire collection of Signature BWR products. 

For a limited time, use code "2024WAFFLE" for 20% off the BWR Collection!

The Belgian Waffle Ride Tripel Crown was designed to provide participants with diverse racing experiences, the series features a points-based omnium format for both Waffle and Wafer distances, accommodating both professional and amateur riders. Points earned across the three races will determine the Tripel Crown champions, with extra weightage given to the BWR California event.

The 2024 series boasts a substantial prize purse of $37,000, with individual event purses and Tripel Crown awards up for grabs. With prizes awarded to the top performers in both male and female categories, the series promises fierce competition and unforgettable cycling experiences for all participants.

Our resident Director of Photography and master of all things content, Rob Wessels, went out on a ride with BWR COO & Gravel Guru Philip Tintsman to test out the new BWR Signature Collection. Who is Philip Tintsman, you may ask? Get to know Phil here.
