New Yorker Michael Margarite (Weather Channel Racing) wins the 6th Gran Fondo New York

Margarite first over the line, followed by another two local riders, Allan Rego, and Adderlyn Cruz

New York, May 15th - Today Mike Margarite kept the crown in town by completing the challenging 100-mile route with 8,500 feet of climbing from NYC to Bear Mountain and back in 4h 30m 15s ahead of Allan Rego 4h 36m 18s and Adderlyn Cruz 4h 36m 50s. 

In 2015 Mike Margarite, Dan Chabanov and Gavi Epstein set out to keep the crown in town, with best placed rider Mike Margarite 3rd. 

Margarite (Weather Channel Racing) attacked the leading group at the bottom of Bear Mountain and quickly established a gap of 40 seconds at the top of the climb and spent half of the race time trialling on his own. He quickly established a 5 minute lead over the peleton.

Rego, who was dropped on the Bear Mountain climb, by the leading group - got back. Rego then went on the attack to chase Margarite. The peleton seemed too disorganised to chase and the gap grew and grew. Cruz also went on the attack, chasing Rego.

Several riders at the finish commented that the standard of riding this year was at another level. Allan Rego (Lupus Racing Team) commented "We had the pressure of bringing the win back to New York this year, and after all the hard work, it has finally paid off".

For the women, Columbian rider Camila Cortes powered away to finish over 20 minutes ahead of Brazilian Marcella Toldi and Canadian Heather Low.
