Bicycling Magazine has Gran Fondo Las Vegas on its "bucket list" of Gran Fondos! Join us Saturday, April 5, 2014 and see why!
Two distances (re-branded for 2014): 70 mile Gran Fondo or 100 mile Ultimo Fondo
The Gran Fondo is a hugely popular and celebrated tradition in the Italian cycling world. Meaning "the big ride" or "the big endurance," a Gran Fondo is a long distance, timed cycling event (not a race) that welcomes competitive, amateur and recreational cyclists of all abilities.
The Gran Fondo Las Vegas will be fully supported with at least five feed zones (we call them checkpoints), roving SAG and a great lunch after the ride. All riders will wear a timing chip, and results will be posted at the finish line and also on the website.
The truth is, while calling an event "Gran Fondo" is a new, sort of trendy concept, Planet Ultra has been bringing you these types of timed events since 2001.
We know that most folks participate in distance events for the pure enjoyment of riding through beautiful scenery with their friends. We also know that some cyclists have a competitive spirit and it’s important for them to have an accurate time to compare with others. So we offer the best of both worlds.
First stage of the Planet Ultra Triple Crown of Gran Fondos!
For 2013, if you complete both Las Vegas and Zion you’ll receive a discount code for 30% off your Tri States entry.
Complete Tri States and you’ll be automatically entered into a drawing to win free entries to all 3 events the following year.
You’ll also receive a special award for completing all three of these incredibly beautiful and challenging events.
Join the fun! Ride all 3!
