GFNY heads to Chile for season ending race in Casablanca

Sold out field ready to tackle Global Cycling Marathon season ending race in Casablanca, Chile this Sunday November 25.

(NEW YORK CITY, November 21, 2018) – An action-packed GFNY year comes to a close with the season ending GFNY Chile in Casablanca, Chile this Sunday November 25.

A one-hour drive from Chiles’ capital, Santiago, the world-renowned Casona Vermonte Winery is the host of the start and finish of the race, and offers wine tastings, exquisite meals and tours during and after the race for families and riders. 

The competitive long route encompasses 128km with 1840m of climbing. The course has become viral due to one of granfondo cycling’s steepest climbs – El Gran Tunquen which starts at the Pacific Ocean and tops out at 28%. Riders will again be zigzagging up the road to not have to get off the bike and walk. Still, many will end up walking up in cleats. The shorter non-competitive route of 76km skips Tunqen and has a total of 760m of climbing. The top 10% of finishers on the competitive route will qualify for the racer corral at the 2019 GFNY World Championship NYC.

“What better way to end your racing year than riding through the mountains and vineyards of central Chile and then be rewarded at the end with a beautiful meal and wines at the Veramonte Winery,” said Lidia Fluhme, President and co-founder of GFNY. “This is such a beautiful part of the world with world class hospitality and warm people. We are looking forward to a great race on Sunday.”
