The USA’s Gran Fondo National Championship Series
2017 marks the 6th year of the highly successful and expanding series of events with demand increasing due to the popularity of GFNCS’s Gran Fondo format of timed sections, individual and team prizes for all abilities.
Every Giordana Gran Fondo National Championship Series (GFNCS) event offers courses covering approximately ~30 (Piccolo), ~60 (Medio) and ~100 miles (Gran) through some of the most beautiful, and challenging cycling terrain across the U.S.
The format provides both a competitive and recreational experience; making them great events for all levels of riders. Timed sections allow riders, solo or team, to compete for the fastest times through specific sections of the course, while also allowing cyclists to ride causally at a more relaxed pace through the non-timed sections.
Riders compete for overall and category placement by gender and age which includes:
Custom Giordana “Race Winner” kits (shorts and jerseys) for all Gran Route
age group winners
Cash Purse for top 3 overall Gran Route winners
Awards and Prizes for Medio and Piccolo winners
Awards and Prizes for Team winners
A racing license is NOT required for the Gran Fondo format
