Okay, here’s what’s going down. Alex Bishop has created the Glory Gears Colorado State Championship – it’s an elimination style tournament using the new cycling strategy board game, “Glory Gears!” — which is based off the cult favorite film ‘ Breaking Away’ and the Little 500. AND THERE ARE SOME MAJOR PRIZES AT STAKE.
This tournament will take place in participating bike shops across the state of Colorado (mostly the Front Range) between November 1st and 30th. With the final being held at Blake St.Tavern’s Social Underground on Dec 6, 2017.
The victor of it all takes home the title of State Champion and a Colnago V1R Road Bike, Sram Red Build Kit, Atomik Carbon 50 Wheelset, and carbon accessories (retail value: $9000).
BUT – that said there is a LOT more to be won, including as Stages Dash at Colorado MultiSport on November 30th, and bigger prizes if you make to the finale.
And here’s a whole tutorial on HOW TO PLAY.
Now for the super awesome stuff… the prizes, and take note, this is not even a complete list. Every participant get’s an awesome swag bag, and here at Stages, we’re giving away bonus prizes on the final night:
