Gran Fondo Isle of Man added to UCI Gran Fondo World Series calendar for 2023

Gran Fondo Isle of Man boasts 7,500ft of spectacular climbing around a largely closed road course. Clocking in at the slightly modest distance of 85 miles, it would be foolish to underestimate the challenging nature of our Grandest Fondo. After all, the Isle of Man’s roads have tested to their limits, some of the world’s greatest cyclists; think Coppi, Simpson, Fignon and Millar.

The Gran Fondo gets underway in style with a mass roll out from Mooragh Park, before the peloton is escorted out of the neutralised zone. 80miles of spectacular and unique racing await our competitors when the flag drops – almost entirely held on closed roads , as well as an un-surfaced ‘Strade Bianche’ style blast through a forest plantation.

Packed with the Island’s toughest climbs, competitors will be faced with 25% gradients as they conquer each classic ascent – another stunning vista the only reward before plunging towards the sea that flanks those leg breaking hills.

Whether racing to win, or riding to finish, Gran Fondo Isle of Man is a true test of legs and lungs – one that rewards competitors with an overwhelming sense of satisfaction and achievement.

The Gran Fondo Isle of Man events all start and finish in Ramsey’s fabulous Mooragh Park, which will also hosts the Riders Village.

The Riders Village features a range of high quality food and beverage options for riders and their supporters to enjoy, with a giant LED screen showing live coverage of the World Tour Cycling from around the globe.

The Riders Village also features a ‘Service Course’ offering pre ride technical support from leading bike emporium Cycle 360 as well as Race HQ and Medical Facilities.

Meanwhile the Park itself boasts excellent leisure facilities which visitors of all ages will appreciate including a 12 acre boating lake, tennis courts, a bowling green, BMX track and a crazy golf course as well as a children’s playground and special water play area.
