La Fausto Coppi is back! One of the most popular cycling events among Italian's and European's is back.
ASD Fausto Coppi on the road, the organising association of the famous international Granfondo in Cuneo, is pleased to announce the opening of registration for the 2023 edition. Registration will be available from November 21st 2022.
It is the news that numerous fans have been awaiting for a long time: the date of the event is set for the weekend of June 25th 2023 and, as in previous editions, the number of participants is limited to 2,800.
Now celebrating its 34th edition, after a break in 2022, the 2023 International Granfondo La Fausto Coppi starts up again, proposing its two famous routes: Granfondo of 177 km and 4,125 metres of altitude difference and Mediofondo of 111 km and 2,500 metres of altitude difference.
The King of the Mountain for both routes is the iconic Colle Fauniera, a 22.3-kilometre climb up to the 2,481-metre peak where Pantani's monument stands.
The start is set for 7 a.m. on Sunday 25 June 2023, from the central Piazza Galimberti in Cuneo, where the race packs collection operations are scheduled from Friday on and where the event ExpoVillage will be located.
"Cuneo is a land of epic cycling and La Fausto Coppi is a long-awaited event for cycling fans." commented Davide Lauro and Emma Mana, organisers of the Cuneo event, "After a year's stop, we have taken up the invitation of many friends to propose the Granfondo again. We are convinced that all together, we organizers, our partners, and the public and private bodies that support us, will be able to offer cyclists from all over the world a great event. La Fausto Coppi is a symbol of Italy's alpine cycling and the passion for two wheels that characterizes our province".
The mayor of Cuneo Patrizia Manassero commented: "For Cuneo and our territory, the return of La Fausto Coppi is a great news. I would like to thank the organisers for this renewed commitment; we immediately gave support and worked to ensure that this beloved event could take place again in Cuneo and in our mountains. La Fausto Coppi is many things at once: certainly sport and promotion of the territory, but also an opportunity for cyclists from all over the world to meet and put their passion into action'.
As usual, the La Fausto Coppi jersey, provided to each participant, will be mandatory worn for the duration of the race.
