Sprint finish at GFNY Chile

September 27, 2023

Nicolas Cabrera and Dominique Lavanchy win the fifth edition

New York City, September 27, 2023 /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Viña Veramonte hosted the 5th edition of GFNY Chile this past Sunday. The race course was 127.9km long with 1832m of climbing.

The race started off fast and right from the beginning at km 6, Eyair Astudillo (Chile) took the lead. The chase group including Ricardo Paredes, Nicolás Cabrera, third place finisher from 2022 Benjamin De Vicente and Claudio Alvarez, all Chilean, managed to close the gap at km 60.

During the infamous Muro de Tunquen climb, a grueling 27% steep wall, attacks started. Ultimately, it was Cabrera who executed an unexpected late-race surge during the final sprint to the line. Clinching first place, he clocked in at 03:26:45, a significant improvement over his 10th place finish in the 2022 edition of the race. Paredes and De Vicente followed, securing the 2nd and 3rd spots respectively.

In the female race, Dominique Lavanchy took the win in 4:14:17, ahead of Keyni Urbina and Maria Elena Parra.

The GFNY racing calendar continues to unfold, with the debut of GFNY Maryland Cambridge (USA) and the 2nd edition of GFNY Zapopan (Mexico) scheduled for Sunday, October 1, 2023.
