10 minutes: that’s how long it took the 2021 edition SBT GRVL to sell out. This year, to give everybody a fair shake, SBT GRVL is moving to a random selection entry for 2022, taking place December 10-12, 2021 on BikeReg.
Starting November 20th, deferred riders being able to re-register through December 8th. From December 5th – 8th, priority registration will open for advocacy partners, parity initiatives and our new program to get junior riders on gravel. On December 10th – 12th, random selection general registration will take place for women, men and non-binary riders, with notification on December 15th.
“While it was incredible to see the level of interest evident from a quick sellout, we also recognize that people working or unable to be at their keyboard when registration opens might be left out. So, we’ve worked out an approach that we believe supports key advocacy partners, initiatives important to us, and also enables a more equitable process for general registration that doesn’t favor the fastest internet connection.” -SBT GRVL owner Amy Charity
