Forte | Legends

Hall of Fame 2014-present

This page is a bit special

Behold, the Forte. At 152km long and involving 3100m of climbing (including a detour up the Cat 1 Cypress Mountain and back), the Forte is the category that immortalizes any rider that manages to conquer it. We call them the rockstars of RBC GranFondo Whistler.

Since 2014 we’ve given all Forte riders a special pair of loud red socks, and from 2017 a finishers’ medal weighing nearly half a kilo. New for 2019 comes the Forte Legends Hall of Fame where you can permanently see which riders have claimed victory on the toughest category – and for how many years.

The only question to ask is: how high up the list can you rise?

Forte is back in 2021 due to the 2020 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.

Forte Hall of Fame

The Forte began in 2014.

In this time, 950 unique riders have conquered RBC GranFondo Whistler’s ultimate challenge. These are the Forte Legends.
