3000 riders at 10th edition of GFNY Cozumel this Sunday

November 8, 2023

Riders and their families are taking over the tropical paradise island

New York City, November 8, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The 10th GFNY Cozumel is the largest bike race in the Americas south of NYC. This Sunday, 3000 riders will tackle the flat yet windy 157.5km race course with 431m of climbing around the tropical island.

GFNY Cozumel is the success story of Daniela and Shaun Gad and their team,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “They created an unparalleled event combining serious racing with unlimited fun. And the GFNY brand gives riders the confidence to get a safe experience in an international environment.”

Race week activities will take place at Centro de Convenciones Cozumel. It includes the GFNY Cozumel group ride where riders get to do a fun and relaxed ride together with ex-pro cyclists Raúl Alcalá and Luis Lemus. The GFNY Kids Cozumel races take place on Saturday at 8am and provide little riders a true GFNY experience including a ride shirt and finisher medal for riders as young as two years old.

On Sunday, riders will race past panoramic views of the beautiful turquoise ocean and white sandy beaches – but with challenging winds. Athletes, friends and families will take over the island and turn it into a road cycling heaven on earth – and arguably the biggest cycling party of the year.
