Malaysia’s biggest bicycle festival is back for it’s second edition in April 2017; this time it will be jointly organised by X Camp and Destination Perak, and aims to be the biggest in Asia. Based in Ipoh, it is the hub for three days of epic challenges and cycle-based fun. With events for all types of cyclists young and old, this truly is a festival for all velo-lovers.
Ipoh Cycle Fest 2017 is more than a show, it’s a celebration of cycling within a festival, providing great experience for all to enjoy, from a cycling novice to the experienced rider. Whether Malaysia-based cyclists or visiting participants, their friends or family members, or those who enjoy great music, great food and quality sports entertainment, Ipoh Cycle Fest will allow everybody to soak up the unique festival atmosphere.
GFNY World, the global cycling marathon brand, continues expanding its portfolio of events in 2017. A total of 14 races will be held, including the Campagnolo GFNY World Championship in NYC and the regional championships Asia, Europe and Latin America. All the GFNY World events offer participants the established, trusted GFNY experience complemented with each location’s local flair.
GFNY World races offer a consistent, high-quality rider and family experience across all events. Riders get to BE A PRO FOR A DAY on challenging, scenic courses with a professional level of support. Every rider receives the iconic, official, neon green GFNY race jersey, which has become a sought-after badge of honor. The original GFNY NYC race serves as the World Championship of the series, and each GFNY World race gives riders the chance to qualify for the elite racer corral start in NYC.
The 2017 GFNY events
The 2017 GFNY World series consists of 14 events in 2017, including three new one-day races and two new three-day stage races. Also new: three regional championships in Latin America, Europe and Asia, where the overall winners receive a fully paid trip to the World Championship in NYC and the top 20% of each age group qualifies for the World Championship racer corral.
23-30 April 2017
Gran Fondo New York was founded in 2011, when we brought the authentic Italian amateur bike racing event granfondo to the world’s greatest city. A granfondo is like a marathon where athletes compete against each other, themselves and the clock, and do their best as a personal challenge.
At each GFNY event, you will enjoy:
Closed roads or police moderated traffic with right of way at all intersections
The chance to do your best on a challenging course without having to worry about anything but riding
Chip timing, results and rankings
Competition prizes across all age groups
The chance to qualify for an elite corral starting position at the inaugural GFNY Championship in NYC
Uniform set of rules
Great participant and family experience
