Arielle of Indianapolis is an amateur racer on the Women’s Racing Project, which states it is “A women's cycling team based out of the mid-west. Our goal is to have equal racing opportunities available for women.”  This matches perfectly the mission of Gran Fondo World Tour, which is committed to always providing equal prize money to Men and Women at all events.

The 2019 Rollfast Gran Fondo’s 100 Mile course set another new event record as 86 cyclists joined the Sub4 our finishers club and will be awarded a special Sub4 Belt Buckle.

The Male and Female Winners were crowned Gran Fondo World ® Champions, each winning a $1,500 Prize and a pair of Zipp 404 Wheels.
