SUAREZ Gran Fondo National Series Announces 2024 Raffle Prize List

April 15, 2024

More than $30,000 worth of prizes up for grabs at Series events in 2024

Gettysburg, PA – April 15, 2024/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Gran Fondo National Series today announced more than $30,000 worth of prizes that Series riders will win during the 2024 season. All participants in the six Series-owned events are eligible to win a wide range of products in race-day raffles. Prizes are supplied by more than 14 Series sponsors and include a 4-day stay at Garda Bike Hotel in Italy, a smart trainer from Wahoo Fitness, a wheelset from Industry Nine, components from Shimano and Cane Creek, and much more.

“I focus on expanding the prize raffles at Gran Fondo National Series events because I want every rider to have an equal chance at winning great products,” said Gran Fondo National Series Founder and Event Director, Reuben Kline. “I love celebrating the top riders who stand on the podium, but I want every rider to know they can win something at our events and I’m happy that Series sponsors continue to support our vision and values.”

“The energy that builds around Gran Fondo National Series event raffles is incredible,” said Nick Legan, Road Brand Manager for Shimano. “Our goal is to promote and grow cycling and to get people excited about Shimano products, and Reuben’s raffles give every rider an opportunity to win, not just the select few who compete for podium positions.”

International brands have also seen benefits from introducing their products to North American cyclists through Gran Fondo National Series sponsorships. Colombian cycling apparel company SUAREZ is the title sponsor of the Series and BMC Switzerland is the Series official bike partner. Riders have opportunities to win prizes from Garda Bike Hotel in Italy, and premium Italian balsamic vinegar from Monari Federzoni.

“Sponsoring Gran Fondo National Series has increased Garda Bike Hotel’s annual reservations from US cyclists, and many riders who win the raffle prizes return for subsequent visits and bring their friends and families,” said Nicola Verdolin, owner of Garda Bike Hotel and the associated Andiamo Cycling touring company.
