If you want to ride in the Championships, you need to qualify at a UCI Gran Fondo World Series event. We’ll be posting the global calendar shortly, but in the meantime, you can find it here.

How do I register for the World Championships?

All qualified riders will be privately emailed by the UCI once results are ratified with a link to register.

If I don’t qualify, can I still ride in 2020?

Yes, and we’d love to see you there! The award-winning RBC GranFondo Whistler will still be taking place on Saturday, Sept 12, 2020. You do not need to be qualified for the World Champs to register for and ride in this event.
