2017 Gran Fondo Salt Lake

TOSH Gran Fondo Salt Lake

May 12 2018
Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
 
 
 

The 2017 Gran Fondo Salt Lake course will start and finish at the Utah State Fairpark. Ample parking is nearby and UTA TRAX and Frontrunner stations are within easy riding distance of our headquarters. Our course features a long flat start and finish with middle sections of rolling terrain and views of the Great Salt Lake, the Wasatch Mountains and the Oquirrh Mountains. Utlizing the Mountain View Corridor and Bachus Highway, riders will travel south from the Saltair Resort through Magna, West Jordan, South Jordan and Herriman before returning. Those with tired legs will have several opportunities to cut the course if they feel the need. But our strongest riders will undoubtedly be in it for the long haul.

Aid stations on Gran Fondo Salt Lake will be sponsored by area bike shops and have at least one bike mechanic at each stop. Additionally, aid stations will be supplied with ice water, electrolyte beverages, energy gels, fruits, snacks, portable restrooms, basic first aid kits, HAM radio operators for emergency communication and various other items to make your ride enjoyable, successful and as problem free as possible.

Our 100 Mile riders will have the option of climbing scenic Butterfield Canyon in Southwest Salt Lake Valley. This rugged 6.5 mile ascent will challenge riders with more than 2,500 feet of additional climbing. The spice it up, we’ll record the times of each rider tackling Butterfield. The first riders to the top (male and female) as well as the fastest (we’ll record times from bottom to the top) will win special King and Queen of the Mountain awards. All riders who reach the summit will receive a special Gran Fondo Salt Lake prize. But remember, the Gran Fondo Salt Lake is not officially a race – take it easy on the descent so you can enjoy the remainder of the event without leaving a skin deposit on the pavement. The optional climb will add 13 miles and more than an hour to your ride. Plan, and train, accordingly.

Aid stations will be placed at locations along the course every 15-20 miles with space to dismount, fuel up and rest for a few minutes if you’d like.
