GFNY Tunja is GFNYs 18th race in Latin America in 2023
NEW YORK CITY, August 9, 2022 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series announces GFNY Colombia Tunja, scheduled for August 27, 2023. The competitive long distance stretches over 125.6km with 2023m of climbing. Start and finish will be hosted at the Plaza Bolivar.
Tunja is located in the state of Boyaca, nestled in the eastern range of the Andes mountains at 2800m. Boyaca is considered the capital of cycling in Colombia, due to the numerous mountain passes which provide ideal training conditions for Colombia’s future champions.
“Post pandemic, we were looking for a company to take over the operation of the GFNY brand in Colombia with the goal to have several races,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “We’re glad to now have the experienced GFNY Mexico team working hand in hand with local experts to bring riders a top notch race experience.”
“GFNY is the original granfondo brand, having held the first ever granfondo in this cycling fanatic country in 2015. We’re proud to finally expand beyond GFNY Bogota and grateful for the opportunity to help shape road bicycle racing in Colombia.”
