World’s highest bike race: GFNY Peru in the Andes this Sunday

April 6, 2022

The second edition of GFNY Peru will be held again in historic Cusco

New York City (April 6, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – As race season commences, GFNY Endurance Sports Series continues with the second GFNY Peru this Sunday, April 10. The host village of Cusco is an old Incan city located in the Peruvian Andes. The course crosses archaeological Incan ruins and landscapes, such as The Sacred Valley and Puka Pukara.

The GFNY Peru racecourse covers 128.6km with 1729m of climbing, reaching up to a staggering 3780m above sea level.  This makes the race world’s highest mass participation road cycling race.

“Racing at such high altitude has its particular fascination,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “And doing so in this historical setting in the footsteps of Incans from thousands of years ago, is extra inspiring.”
