Updated Team Competition with 15-Second Time Bonus Per Team Member
The Gran Fondo National Series encourages clubs and teams to ride, compete, and have fun together.

A team’s time for the competition is equal to the sum of a team’s fastest four finishers’ times in the overall standings of the Gran Route.
