GFNY NYC to offer $10,000 purse to break 4 hours!

Campagnolo GFNY World Championship offers $10,000 to the first rider who can break 4 hours over its 100 mile championship course

NEW YORK CITY, April 25, 2019 – Next month the 9th annual GFNY World Championship will take place. Over the years no rider has managed to break four hours over the 100mile course that has 2800 meters of climbing.

Now is the time to make history and take on the challenge. The first rider to finish the Campagnolo GFNY World Championship NYC course on May 19, 2019 under 4 hours gun time will receive $10,000.

The most recent fastest times have not gone below 4hrs15min (2015), 4hrs30min (2016), 4hrs:28min (2017) and 4hrs:22min (2018).

“Road racing may not be about finishing fast but rather finishing first. However, adding a prime for a fast time will bring more talent to the race and invigorate it from the gun,” said GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “Also, it will be inspiring to compare for the whole peloton where the majority is riding for a personal best on the course.”

Register now to take on the ultimate GFNY challenge for your chance to make history.
