Overall podium - 122km
With the UCI Gran Fondo World Series occurring at the event this year, plenty of riders are gearing up to qualify by finishing in the top 20% of their age group and make it to the 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships that we’re hosting.
Riders can qualify in the St. Regis Cup 122km teams race, or in the Gran Fondo 122km category . This leaves the ride open to different tactics and times – but the victory of the overall win is still there for the taking.
This year, we’ve switched the individuals’ podium to reflect the top 3 men and women across the line in the Gran Fondo, and the fastest chip times for the Forte.
The overall top 3 men and women will have their own awards ceremony on Celebration Plaza, complete with champagne spraying and flowers.
The women’s and men’s winner of the Forte will both receive full Cypress G8 passes, thanks to Cypress Mountain.
The G8 Pass gives you skiing and riding all day, all night, all-Season—no restrictions. Cypress will also provide access to exclusive Cypress Mountain offers and other great perks!
