GFNY adds L’Alpe d’Huez

April 14, 2021

GFNY La Vaujany will offer riders the chance to tackle the legendary L’Alpe d’Huez climb – twice on June 20, 2021

NEW YORK CITY – The Global Endurance Sports Series GFNY adds a second race in the dream destination of Vaujany in the French Alps on June 20, 2021. At GFNY La Vaujany, riders get to tackle L’Alpe d’Huez from two sides for a total of 103km with 3,669m of climbing.

GFNY already hosts GFNY Alpes Vaujany which will see its second edition on August 29, 2021 and include legendary Col de la Croix de Fer and Col du Glandon.

The inaugural race in 2020 was the first race in France during the pandemic. GFNYs covid safe measures were lauded by French government officials and applied to many French events happening after GFNY.

Due to this success, GFNY took over the organization of the cyclosportive “La Vaujany” which has been existing for 24 years. GFNY La Vaujany will be held on a more compact course than in recent years and include the infamous L’Alpe d’Huez climb.

“Vaujany is truly a cyclists’ dream destination in the heart of the French Alps,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “There are so many legendary climbs in the area and the village itself is an incredibly relaxing place immersed in spectacular nature. When we were approached by the municipality to organize GFNY La Vaujany, we jumped on the opportunity to bring our riders yet another GFNY experience.”

Both GFNY La Vaujany and GFNY Alpes Vaujany offer weeklong camps surrounding the race. Riders get to experience all the legendary cols that are not already part of the race to make the most of their time in Vaujany.
