The Granfondo Gimondi Bianchi rejoins the “Prestigio” family

The 24th edition of the event entitled to Felice, to be held in Bergamo on May 10th, returned in the main national cycling4fun circuit gathering the best Granfondo

The Granfondo Felice Gimondi – Bianchi achieved a new and ambitious goal by returning to enrich the “Prestigio” circuit from 2020. Organized by “Cicloturismo” magazine, the circuit includes the main races of the amateur calendar. The participants of the 24th edition, to be held on May 10th in Bergamo, will secure the opportunity to add a piece towards the achievement of the “prestigious” cycling4fun title, completing one of the two main routes among the three available – short (89,4 km), medium (128,8km) and long (162,1 km).

Participation in “Prestigio” is completely free and doesn’t require any registration. The circuit’s ranking will reward both riders and teams taking part in some of the most representative events of the calendar, without any particular competitive purpose: the time  for the Granfondo finish doesn’t matter indeed. In order to sew the Scudetto belonging to the “prestigious” riders on the jersey, cyclists from all over the world must complete at least 7 out of 10 Granfondo on the calendar (7 long routes for men, 7 medium routes for women and over 65). On the other hand, the Prestigio circuit will reward the teams with the highest number of athletes covering as many kilometres as possible.

“The come back in the Prestigio circuit – the event’s organizer Giuseppe Manenti explained – is a great news, especially since the 2020 edition will be the first without our great and beloved champion. That’s why a special thanks go to the magazine Cicloturismo and to all its editorial staff”.
