Oh, hi there…

The UCI Gran Fondo World Championships are being held on the same day and (with the road race) course as RBC GranFondo Whistler, the award-winning Gran Fondo event, now in its 11th year and the largest of its kind in North America.

Check out photos and video from the event, and get a flavour of what to expect at the World Champs!


Could GCN qualify?

In 2019, we challenged Simon Richardson and Jeremy Powers from the world’s largest cycling community, the phenomenally awesome GCN, to see if they could qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in 2020.

Here’s what happened…

The RBC GranFondo Whistler course is essentially the same as the UCI World Championships course, on the closed, beautiful Sea to Sky Highway. We will be celebrating for 3 days, starting with a cocktail reception on Thursday, followed by the Velospoke Bike Expo and Pasta Party on Friday and then finally the big ride you trained for all year. After, soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the big Canadian party.
