2016 Gran Fondo Florida GFNCS Results
Who says Florida is flat!
Centered in the rolling orange groves of Pasco County, the Gran Fondo Florida course started and ended at Local Public House & Provisions on Pennsylvania Avenue in San Antonio, FL. The race followed, in part, the proposed Olympic road race course that was part of Tampa’s bid to host the Summer Olympic Games. It traveled along rural rolling hills, past horse farms and crystal clear springs. Briefly going through Withlacoochee State Forest and the hills surrounding Brooksville, Florida. At the 89 miles it entered a piece of US cycling history along Darby road, once home to the famous Darby Road Race that has seen the likes of Tour De France winner Lauren Figon. This area has been the winter training site of some of the top triathletes in the world including members of the TIMEX team and the hometown former US National Cycling team members Josh Thornton and Derek Wilkerson.
