GFNY is THE cycling race of Cannes and we’re proud to line up alongside much more world famous events such as the Cannes Film Festival. Our team led by GFNY France CEO Cedric Haas is working relentlessly to do its part in why Cannes won the title as world’s best event destination.”

Race week activities will take place at Palais des Festivals. It includes the fun GFNY Cannes group ride on Friday and Saturday exclusive to GFNY VIP riders.
