Sold Out Cyprus Gran Fondo a Major Success
600 riders from 31 different nationalities registered to take part in the third edition of Cyprus Granfondo
The time trial on Friday had the same course as in the previous two years with an up-and-down road starting in Niklokeia at almost sea level towards a turning point halfway the 28km at 300m above the sea before heading back to the finish.
The queen stage on Saturday started in the city center of Pafos at the medieval castle for a 20km neutralized start towards Niklokeia where the real race begins. The 96km had a first half full of climbing towards an altitude of almost 1,000m and showed all the best Cyprus could offer with very traditional small villages and nice scenic views. Finish wass back near the coastline in the village of Kouklia. Total elevation on day 2 was 1,600m.
Day 3 also had an updated course with a start again in Pafos at the castle for a 14km neutralized start before hitting the hills for a short 54km stage and 1,454m of elevation. This course was shorter but finished in the hills.
