2020 has been a special year, which forced us to reinvent ourselves.
The Golden Trail Championship was created out of a worldwide lockdown and not being allowed to go to races around the world.
From 2022, The GTC will always be an option that we keep in the event of unusual circumstances that would force us to cancel GTWS races.
It will be a 5-day stage race where anyone can participate at their own expense if they obtain a race-bib.
The top 10 from the previous year’s GTWS would be directly invited to take part in it, and some Golden Tickets at races and segments would be implemented in all countries that organize a GTNS.
At the end of the stage race, an overall ranking will be established, and the Golden Trail Champion will be the one with the lowest time.
The GTC also crowns the Golden Trail Climber Champion, the Golden Trail Downhiller Champion, and the Golden Trail Sprinter Champion.
