GFNY is a personal challenge, where you compete against the clock, yourself and other athletes.
Open to amateurs and professionals, the event simulates a real Italian Grand Fondo with a mass start, chip timing, clear course signage, results based on general times, medals for all participants, trophies and exclusive GFNY Champion jerseys for all professional and age group category winners.
GFNY brings together the largest number of cyclists over a multitude of nationalities. In 2016 the GFNY NYC World Championship featured athletes from a total of 93 countries. The average age of GFNY competitors is 41 and, proportionately, has the highest number of female participants (19%).
Founded in 2010, the GFNY brand is present in several cities around the world. The inaugural event arrives in Cascais, Lisbon, in 2018.
