NEW: 122km Gran Fondo get its own podium!

Podium celebrations

We heard your feedback and will be making podium changes for 2023!

In addition to the St. Regis Cup team race podium, the Gran Fondo category now gets its own top steps based on chip time – replacing the overall podium.

Returning: Our timing system will still show each top 3 per five year gendered age group – letting you see how you stack up against your peers!

NEW: Promote and earn cash!

Thanks to Race Roster, you can now earn $10 CASH for each rider who signs up using your unique referral link. There’s no upper limit to payout.

Simply register for the event, and you’ll find your referral link on the Race Roster Promote dropdown.


NEW: We’re changing our package pickup check in system to get you into the expo faster. Now, thanks to Race Roster’s technology, you won’t be assigned a number before the event – all participants will be given a rider number upon arrival depending on which stations are quietest, reducing lineup times dramatically.

Even better, we tested this system successfully at June’s XFondo event – and if you missed it, check out what went down here!

PRIMAFONDO: it’s back

Join us for a free (optional) no drop ride for all abilities from Red Truck Brewery, before coming back for a party. There will be food, games, giveaways, plenty of surprises, and of course the first beer’s on us.
