GFNY Republica Dominicana this Sunday

March 16, 2023

The Caribbean island will host the third edition

/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – This Sunday, GFNY Republica Dominicana offers riders a challenging 149.7 km race course with an elevation gain of 962 m. Punta Cana with its white sand beaches, blue turquoise water and tropical weather, is the second most popular tourist destination in Latin America.

“Within two editions only, GFNY RD has become a rider favorite thanks to the outstanding work of the team around Norita Bello, Edwin de los Santos, Hamlet Montás and Tony Acosta,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme.

At GFNY, we want to make sure that family and friends accompanying the riders have a good time. Who would say no to a trip to white sand beaches in an area of luxurious all-inclusive resorts popular for windsurfing, kayaking and sailing – especially after a long and dark winter?

Race week activities will take place at BlueMall Punta Cana. It includes the fun GFNY Republica Dominicana group ride on Saturday where riders get to do a relaxed ride together with friends and competitors. On Sunday, riders will tackle the flat to rolling course surrounded on one side by the intense green and impressive hills, and on the other side the amazing Caribbean sea. The main challenge of the day will be the finish stretch from Maco to BlueMall Punta Cana due to its stiff headwinds from the sea.

GFNY riders, families and friends will get to experience an area of luxurious all-inclusive resorts popular for cycling, zip-lining, windsurfing, kayaking and sailing.
