The Cyprus Gran Fondo has been going for 10 years and is a unique event in the sportive calendar. Used by many as an early opportunity to qualify for the UCI Granfondo World Championships on rolling terrain, the event is spread over three days. The first day has a time trial for UCI qualifiers or a sportive. Day two & three are different sportives, both short at 96km & 54km but over challenging terrain.
One of the first UCI Granfondo World Champ qualifiers of the year, a three stage Granfondo in the early season sunshine of Cyprus.
