Over 200 riders tackle one of the USA's hardest Gran Fondo's
Over 14,000 feet of climbing and against the clock through four timed climbs, riders received a medal for their efforts.
Based out of beautiful downtown Golden, CO, the Golden Gran Fondo took riders on a historic course through the Rocky Mountains. Beginning with an ascent up Lookout Mountain, the start of the event traces the route of the inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge. The course then continued with a long climb towards the continental divide and some of the same roads used in the Coors Classic and featured in the movie American Flyers (Kevin Costner’s classic cycling film that was set in Golden). This course was suited to endurance riders with real climbing prowess being treated to some of the most ruggedly beautiful landscapes anywhere!
