Owen Shott and Erica Allar take top prizes at Georgia Gran Fondo

Hundreds of riders enjoyed the scenic and challenging roads of the North Georgia Mountains

Starts and finishing in downtown Helen under the shadow of the mountains made famous by the Tour de Georgia, each rider was provided an electronic timing-chip to keep track of their progress and to allow riders to compete for best time through highlighted sections of the course. 

The course include the climbs of the well known Unicoi Gap, and Hogpen Gap and riders chose from the 25 mile Piccolo, 60 mile Medio and full 100 mile Gran Fondo routes available.

Women's overall winner Eria Allar, riding with her Peidmont College cycling team, used the Georgia Gran Fondo as part of her training block prior to the Women’s Tour of California starting May 11th, with Pro women’s cycling team Rally Cycling.

Men's overall winner Owen Scott from Jacksonville Florida put in an impressive performance.
