October 20, 2023

The Swiss bike brand collaborates with GFNY in the US to showcase its products to GFNY riders

New York City, October 20, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – BMC and GFNY are working together in 2024 to showcase their bikes to riders at races such as GFNY NYC, GFNY Miami, GFNY Sebring, GFNY Maryland Cambridge, and more.

I’ve been familiar with GFNY for quite some time and have participated in their flagship event in New York City,” remarks Joan Hanscom, BMC USA’s North American Marketing Manager. “I’m excited that 2024 provides us the opportunity to creatively present our bikes to the GFNY audience.”

GFNY’s Gruppo social media team and YouTube show hosts will present BMC road bikes – including the Teammachine and Roadmachine – across GFNY’s platforms. Gruppo’s pro rider, Flavio de Luna, will race the UCI 1.2 pro race Gran Premio New York City as part of “Team GFNY” on a BMC.

Participants who race any GFNY USA on a BMC, will benefit from a BMC Special Corral. And BMC ambassadors will hold pre-race group rides at select GFNYs and participate in the races.

We’re thrilled to collaborate with BMC, a premier brand in the world of road bike racing,” states GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “Given that our cyclists make up a core demographic for BMC, the partnership is a natural fit. On a personal note, I’m eagerly anticipating the experience of riding and competing on a BMC bike in 2024, enabling me to offer our community genuine insights.”
