ABOUT GFNY

GFNY World Championship NYC

The inaugural GFNY NYC race was held in 2011 and since then, GFNY has expanded to global series of 20 events. Today, GFNY is the largest global cycling marathon brand, offering events, cycling apparel, casual apparel, gear, sunglasses and coffee to passionate cyclists around the world.

GFNY NYC serves as the GFNY World Championship and every May, cyclists descend onto New York City and the starting line on the world’s busiest bridge, George Washington Bridge, which is fully closed to cars for GFNY. The race features the most international peloton in the world with riders from almost 100 nations coming together from all corners of the world to challenge themselves against the clock and fellow riders over the iconic route. Campagnolo GFNY World Championship has become a mecca for road cyclists from around the world.

The GFNY race jersey

 

The vivid green cycling jersey is a GFNY hallmark. It represents a global cycling community, a ‘family’ of like-minded people who come together to share the road and Be A Pro For A Day. After each race, each race’s GFNY jersey becomes a badge of honor for riders who took part in the event.

What can riders expect on race day?

 

GFNY is a race and personal challenge. Every rider gets chip timed from start to finish regardless if they compete for the win, to set a personal best or just to complete the event.

First and foremost, ALL riders regardless of ability, talent, level or placement in the start corrals can expect to be treated like a Pro For A Day.

  • The entire racecourse is police-monitored for start-to-finish chip timing of all riders.
  • The course has cheering friendly volunteers and fully stocked aid stations to keep you fueled.
  • The race staff ensures whatever your pace, you will receive the same support and treatment for your entire race.

One course for everyone

 

GFNY is the global cycling marathon series. GFNY Italia offers one race course for everyone: 110km, including 25km of Tuscany’s famous White Roads, hard-packed dirt roads.


All finishers are ranked by finish time, and age group podium winners are invited on the podium during the Awards Ceremony. Every finisher receives a Finisher Medal.
