Record Field To Tackle Gran Fondo New York 

The 2016 edition of Gran Fondo New York on May 15 will be in more languages than ever from a record number of entrants.

May 5th - New York "We're getting very close to sell-out with 5,000 riders this year," said Uli Fluhme, CEO of GFNY. "50% of the riders are from the US, the rest from abroad (as mentioned, 83 countries and counting, all continents). That makes GFNY the most international cycling race in the world, something that's a very unique experience for the riders." Last year saw 70 countries represented.

GFNY is the championship race for the GFNY World Series that now has events around the globe and the expansion of the Series has drawn riders from the countries to New York.

"We have more Mexicans, French and Colombians than ever. With the addition of GFNY Indonesia, we expect to draw more Asians in 2017," said Uli.

The event kicks off with the registration expo on the Friday (11-7) and Saturday (11-6) where wristbands, numbers, jerseys and swag are collected and it hits home that the ride is on. "We're happy to be back at the Lexington Armory for the Expo" said Uli.

Athletes will take on a challenging 100-mile route from NYC to Bear Mountain and back to compete against each other, the clock and themselves in a personal endurance challenge. The 50-mile GFNY BEAR on the same day is a non-competitive ride from NYC to Bear Mountain. 

The Gran Fondo 8,500 feet (2,800m) of climbing. The Bear contains 3,000 feet (900m) of climbing.

All funds raised for the GFNY Community Fund via More Than Sport in the build-up to the 2016 Campagnolo GFNY Championship will be going towards making a difference in the communities that neighbor the Campagnolo GFNY course. Fundraisers will be starting from the 3rd, 2nd or 1st corral, or even from the first line, based on the amount raised. 

The 2015 Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York winner was Raul Montana from Colombia. The runner-up is Timo Krieger from Germany followed by NYC local Mike Margarite in third.
