Live this Sunday: 11th GFNY World Championship NYC

May 18, 2023

A live broadcast of the GFNY World Championship NYC will be available globally for free in English and Spanish this Sunday May 21 on GFNY.COM

NEW YORK CITY, May 18, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – The 11th GFNY World Championship NYC will be broadcast live on Sunday May 21 from 6am ET until noon on GFNY.COM, Youtube and Facebook.

Thousands of riders including pros and amateurs alike fight for the GFNY World Championship crown on the 85.1 mile course with 6371 feet of climbing from NYC’s George Washington Bridge and back.

The English broadcast will be commentated by local racing insider Dan Schmalz and GFNY expert Chris Geiser. The Spanish broadcast will be hosted by the Urrego brothers Hector and Sergio. The Colombians have reported from the race for many years for Colombia’s largest cycling website.

But the show will also be interactive as fans can comment on Youtube and Facebook. The live broadcast assistants will relay questions coming in to the commentators. Additional race info will come from the Race Director car.

We’ve been live broadcasting the race since 2016 when live posting became available on Facebook,” said GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme and NYC Race Director. “What started with holding a cell phone out of the lead car and narrating the whole thing right there, has turned into a professional looking and sounding experience.”

What has remained since the early days is the contact with the fans and our ability to interact with them. Compliments like ‘The Giro is on but I am watching you guys – so much better!’ confirmed that we are on the right path for what a modern live broadcast should look and feel like.”

Four moto cameras capture the race action at the front of the male and the female race. The fixed cameras are pointing at the commentators and the finish line.
