We hope you will join us for this year’s Gran Fondo: Taos • Mora • Angel Fire. Gran Fondo is a style of race, better known in France as a cyclosportive; a one-day, annual endurance event of the amateur undertaken for pleasure or as a test of personal fortitude. There are many Gran Fondo races taking place across the globe, but the forerunner of them all is La Marmotte, held the same date as our Fondo in south eastern France. La Marmotte’s fixed course was first run in 1982 and is staged in some of the fabled alp climbs and descents of the Tour de France, cresting at over 8,500 feet in altitude. Gran Fondo: Taos • Mora • Angel Fire is our take on this annual spirit-of-cycling event, and our beautiful course traverses some of the more pristine and beautiful northern New Mexican highlands, with climbs and descents of Alpin proportions here in the Sangre de Cristo chain of the Rocky Mountains.
