De Rosa and GFNY extend multi-year partnership

Race winners and Gruppo Sportivo GFNY equipped with legendary Made in Italy frames

NEW YORK CITY, Sept 22nd – Legendary Italian frame builder De Rosa and the NYC race of the global cycling marathon series GFNY extend their multi-year partnership.

Cicli De Rosa Founder Ugo De Rosa was Eddy Merckx’ frame builder and helped him set up his bike company. “The world of Gran Fondo cycling is very important to De Rosa because the riders understand our bikes,” says Cristiano De Rosa, CEO and son of Ugo. “And GFNY is the only truly international granfondo which is the key reason that De Rosa supports the event. We highly value the feedback of the riders from all over the world.”

De Rosa frames build the foundation of the winner bikes, completed with Campagnolo group sets and wheels.

“Since I started racing as a 16-year old, it’s always been my dream to do so on a De Rosa,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “Lidia and I are fortunate to use the Protos at dozens of tough granfondos with all kinds of road and weather conditions. It not only never let us down but also made racing even more fun. My 16-year old self would have been in awe of our privilege to call De Rosa a partner – and I am now.”

De Rosa also sponsors the GFNY ambassador team “Gruppo Sportivo” with their high end Protos frames.

“Our Gruppo Sportivo team comes from all walks of life and lead our free Sunday group rides to get participants ready for race day,” adds GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “These guys and gals have become true role models for many GFNY riders. Not only is that direct and relatable exposure of De Rosa extremely powerful but there is also no risk of a doping scandal as it is always with professional sports.”
