2nd edition of GFNY Bento Gonçalves this Sunday

October 12, 2023

Riders will tackle almost 3000 m of climbing in Brazil’s Sierra Gaúcha

New York City, October 12, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Bento Gonçalves, located in the heart of Brazil’s wine region, will host the 2nd edition of GFNY Bento Gonçalves, where riders will tackle a 135.9km long racecourse with 2721m of climbing.

“GFNY has been popular with Brazilians since its inception so having a great GFNY race locally is a no-brainer,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “And it’s a proper challenge in Southern Brazil’s spring which is perfect for racing. We look forward to the Brazilian champions and competitors to join us again in NYC for the GFNY World Championship on May 19.”

Race week activities will take place in Fundaparque Rio Grande do Sul. It includes the fun GFNY Bento group ride on Friday and Saturday where riders get to do a relaxed ride together with friends and competitors and GFNY Kids Bento which will take place on Saturday.
