Another season of the Tour de Bloc is upon us and we can’t be anymore excited for it to start!
New for TdB 14 – Age categories
The move to age categories will hopefully encourage more people to join TdB events as the perceived skill level barrier is no longer there. The TdB has always been a grassroots competition series that welcomes climbers of all skill levels. This inclusive approach has enabled us to build a strong and vibrant community that will hopefully continue to help develop future rockstars! 11 and under, 12-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40+, and Elite. The Elite category is intended to replace the Open category.
Every event will post two rankings, one based on age categories while the second is a General Classification (GC) that ranks all of the competitors that signed up for the event. Top six Elite male and female competitors ranked in the GC results will qualify for finals.
