September 23, 2021

GFNY continues to dominate South American mass participation cycling event with GFNY Ecuador Manta on September 26

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/– GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series returns to Latin America for the third time this year with GFNY Ecuador on Sunday, September 26. The race offers a long course of 143 kilometers and a (non-competitive) medium course of 65 kilometers.

The competitive long course, with 2034 meters of climbing,  will take riders from the start at Wyndham Manta Gail Plaza along the beautiful Ecuadorian Pacific Coastline, the Pacoche forest, and back through the nearby mountain range.

“GFNY Ecuador was the first ever mass participation cycling race in Ecuador back in 2019,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

“Breaking ground in a new country is always exciting and provides unique challenges, yet it makes us extra proud when achieved. Huge props to Elena Nolasco, Christian Mendez and the whole GFNY team in Ecuador to further grow and evolve this spectacular event in the midst of a global pandemic.”

“Cycling is a phenomenal outlet and strengthens physical and mental well being, especially in a crisis. And being outdoors, it can be done in a safe way during a pandemic.”
