RBC GranFondo Whistler 2018 unveils…
See the new medals, this year’s swag, plus $2500 grand prize, and the ultimate VIP package
With only seven weeks to go until the top GranFondo in North America, this year’s event is gearing up to be another epic one. Riders who challenge the scenic Sea-to-Sky highway in 2018 can not only expect a big finish line party in Whistler but also a good looking medal around their necks. The 2018 RBC GranFondo Whistler medals feature a sleek design and a plaid ribbon to match the 2018 Safetti kit.
Oversized Forte medal
Those riders who choose to take on the 152 km Forte distance and ride up the infamous Cypress Mountain before heading to Whistler, receive an extra-large medal and exclusive re-designed Forte socks. This year’s medal is rumoured to be even chunkier than last year’s.
Participants placing in the top three in either the team challenge or 5 year age group categories will receive a Jukebox certificate with their name on. The certificates are a great way for riders to remember their achievements at RBC GranFondo Whistler 2018.
St. Regis Cup $2500 prize
The St. Regis Cup presented by Robert J Macdonald will showcase the top teams battling for glory. Qualified teams will compete for the grand prize of $2500 to Gotham Steakhouse in either the women’s, men’s, or mixed categories. Second and third place receive a $1500 gift certificate to Hy’s Steakhouse and $500 to Red Truck Brewery respectively.
Official 2018 swag
The 2018 swag bag is packed with some serious goodies including a Herschel Supply Co travel kit, the RBC GranFondo Whistler water bottle, and many others such as McSweeney’s jerky. Another item back this year are the much sought-after RBC GranFondo Whistler cycling socks!
Bonus VIP swag
The all-inclusive Alta Classe category not only includes exclusive perks such as a post-ride massage and an Alta Classe lounge at the finish, it also features a premium swag bag with items such as a Herschel Supply Co Novel duffel bag. This is the ultimate VIP package for RBC GranFondo Whistler.
