GFNY North American Championship 2023 held in Puerto Rico

November 25, 2022

Scheduled for February 5, 2023 the Caribbean island will serve as the GFNY North American Championship

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Puerto Rico offers a championship worthy 82.7 miles long course with 5086 feet of climbing with start and finish in the capital San Juan. The racecourse begins flat through Carolina but quickly turns inland on undulating roads including four distinctive climbs before heading back through Carolina to the finish in San Juan.

The 2023 GFNY Puerto Rico has all the ingredients for a championship race: a course that favors allrounders, perfect racing weather and a great excuse for riders and accompanying family and friends from colder climates for a beautiful warm weather break. Puerto Rico is a sought after travel destination for a reason,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

GFNY Championship races draw a larger and more competitive field due their elevated prestige and the fact that not the top 10% but 20% of finishers in each age group will gain a Qualifier Corral slot for all GFNY races for the next 380 days.

Meanwhile overall champions will be rewarded with flights to and accommodation at the 11th GFNY NYC World Championship on May 21, 2023.

The GFNY Championship races are open to anyone so riders not just from North America but just as much South America are expected to compete,” says Fluhme. “And for the more casual riders there is always the non-competitive (but timed) shorter distance at GFNY.”
