The Blue Mountains Gran Fondo Road Race takes place Saturday June 15th, 2019 and will be the sole Canadian qualifier events for the 2019 UCI Gran Fondo World Series taking place in Poland. Note that there will be no Time Trial Qualifier at the event in 2019.
New Name, Same Great Race
Formerly the Grey County Road Race, The Blue Mountains Gran Fondo is back for another great year of racing and riding! Our new Fondo focused format allows us to:
• Better align with UCI Gran Fondo World Series
• We are already following the rules, format and spirit of a Gran Fondo
• We continue to build on the Medio Fondo, 75km distance route for those who want to participate in a shorter distance, this year brought to you by Centurion
In 2011 the UCI created the UCI GFWS (rebranded in 2016 from the UWCT – UCI World Cycling Tour) as a series of UCI-sanctioned races held all over the world. Feeding into the 2019 Gran Fondo World Championships that are being held inform Sept 5th to 8th in Poznan Poland. In the qualifier events the top 25% from each age group will qualify for the Amateur World Championships, where the champions will be awarded with the coveted rainbow jersey.
