GFNY expands to Scandinavia with GFNY Sweden Uppsala

Scheduled for July 3, GFNY Uppsala will be the first GFNY race in Northern Europe

GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series adds its first race in Scandinavia with GFNY Uppsala, scheduled for July 3, 2022. Riders will get to experience a GFNY just an hour from the country’s capital Stockholm.

GFNY Uppsala’s long, competitive course is 168km long with 1862m of climbing and requires a complete racer who can excel on a continuous up and down. Just like at the inaugural GFNY Ann Arbor a month earlier and an ocean away, GFNY Uppsala starts and finishes at the city’s ice skating rink.

“Since we started GFNY in NYC more than a decade ago we’ve always had a large contingent of Swedish riders at our NYC race,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme.

“It’s great to finally be able to come to Sweden with a GFNY in one of the most prolific countries in endurance sports. We’re delighted to work with Uppsala as the host town because we know they will do everything to support GFNYs mission to make riders Be a Pro for a Day.”

Host town Uppsala is Sweden’s 4th largest city and dates back more than 2000 years. Having been one of the main Viking settlements and residence of the kings of the legendary Yngling dynasty, it was founded in 1286.

Today, it’s a modern, innovative and progressive city with a great restaurant and bar scene, courtesy of it being a university city. Uppsala is one of the leading sports cities in Sweden, with many sports clubs and several sports arenas for outdoor and indoor sports.
