The Oregon Triple Crown Series is a series of three Cycling Events in Oregon featuring 1 or 4 routes per event. These events match endurance and adventure with community involvement and mechanical support along the way.

What separates the Oregon Triple Crown apart is great courses, friends and delicious local food and beverages at each event.

Sign up for the whole OTC series to have your cumulative time recorded for the overall age group placing in both the long and medium distances. Please note you can just come to one and have a great time but the series pass entitles you to great gear and that finisher jersey if you have what it takes to finish all three!

The Series Pass is meant to encourage you to set a course for adventure with our friends from Co-Motion Cycles and Rolf Prima Wheels.
