Inaugural GFNY Kuala Lumpur this Sunday
February 9, 2023
The capital city of Malaysia will open the Asian GFNY season
/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ -This Sunday, GFNY Kuala Lumpur offers racers a 135.6 km long course which will take riders from the heart of the city, into the hilly outskirts and back to Merdeka Plaza for a total of 1531m of climbing. The finish line will be at the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
After NYC, Bogota, Mexico City, Jerusalem and Quito, the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur is the sixth GFNY in a capital city – and it’s the first one in Asia.
“Holding a GFNY in a capital city and metropolis like Kuala Lumpur is as fascinating for the riders as it is challenging for the organizers,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “But once the race comes together, it’s magic for riders to race through closed city streets – and to see it executed by our team.”
Race week activities will take place at Jln Raja in the city center. It includes the GFNY Festival, Expo and registration on Saturday. The capital city of Malaysia will offer a variety of food and shopping options which will excite and surprise GFNY riders, families and friends who get to experience everything from glitzy shopping malls and fine dining to markets and street food.
