Qualification Awarded to Top 25%

Given the difficult season that saw cancellations from qualifier events related to the Covid 19-pandemic and travel restrictions making it difficult for most events to have the same number of participants at the start compared to previous seasons, the UCI has decided to increase the percentage of qualified riders back to 25% instead of 20% which was applied since the 2019 World Championships in Poznan.

Riders who finished in the top 25% of their age group in the 6 qualifier events that took place prior to the pandemic and the cancelled 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships or in the 17 qualifiers that have already taken place or are scheduled for this season will soon get an official invitation to register for the 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships who take place in Istocno, Sarajevo from 6-10 October. The UCI expect these invitations to be sent by the end of this month.

The main goal of limiting the percentage to 20% in the last two seasons was the safety of riders during the World Championships with more qualifier events each year (29 scheduled last season) and more participants at the start of the World Championships, but given the pandemic, this limitation was of no use.

Riders who are not able to qualify in one of the qualifier events which remain on the calendar also have an option to apply for a wildcard.

Defending World Champions from Poznan 2019, reigning continental and national masters champions are awarded with direct qualification. Also the national federations of countries without a qualifier event can benefit from 10 wildcards to give to their best riders. It's not possible to apply for a wildcard based on previous results in UCI Gran Fondo World Championships or results in other Granfondos who are not part of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series.

Marta Gogolewska, vice-worldchampion Gran Fondo in 2017 was the fastest in the sprint to claim the female victory in the granfondo
