RBC Gran Fondo Whistler Gears Up for 2020 UCI Gran Fondo Qualifiers

Just three weeks to go, limited places left as Forte rides sells out in advance!

North America's largest Gran Fondo takes place in just 3 weeks time on September 7th. Selected as the host for the 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships, Whistler is also the first qualifier too.

However, as the UCI Gran Fondo World Series expands in terms of participation and events, the qualifying criteria has moved up a bar.

Riders now need to finish in the top 20% of their age category for 2020, previously this was 25%.

The UCI Gran Fondo World Series will grow significantly next season with 10 new events featured on the 2020 calendar, with four events in North America to qualify at which includes the RBC GranFondo Whistler on Sept 7, 2019, Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo on May 16-17, 2020, Utah Gran Fondo 10-11 July, 2020 and a new event the Classique des Appalaches in Victoriaville, Canada on July 2-4, 2020.

The RBC GranFondo Whistler takes place annually on the second weekend of September since 2010. This ride offers beautiful landscapes and a clear, traffic-free passage over the picturesque Lions Gate Bridge followed by a challenging climb to the mountain Resort of Whistler.
