The Alta Classe announcement
The first two years we hosted the Alta Classe experience, this year we change it up a bit.
For RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley, we asked ourselves how we could make the party as big and as unified as possible, while keeping your celebrations elevated and feeling like that “one weekend only” experience. And so, we’re delighted to let you know that we will be retiring the Alta Classe VIP category. Why? Well, we believe that everyone at the event should feel like an important person! Now, all riders will get to experience the best in post-ride entertainment, hosting and luxury. After all, why not treat everyone like royalty?
From today, you simply need to choose whether you enjoy the 47 mi Medio or 71.5 mi Gran Fondo distance. We’ll take care of the rest!
History needs to be made. So let’s make it
RBC GranFondo Silicon Valley is the platform for something great. It’s the timesheet that keeps your achievements immortal, it’s the hillclimbs that show your legs’ commitment; it’s the age category that you conquered against everyone else.
All of this creates history. Compete to win in 5 year age categories, come together for glory in the Four Seasons Cup Team Challenge, or make yourself proud by completing a bucketlist ride. All is recorded, all is indelible.
