Gran Fondo New York Adds Vintage Category

Campagnolo GFNY Vintage presented by Selle San Marco is a new category at the 5th annual Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York on May 17, 2015. It allows you to experience the GFNY Championship on a classic road racing bike. As a Vintage Category Rider you have to ride a road bike that is from 1987 or earlier.

steel frame,
down tube shifters,
brake cables must pass outside and over the handlebars,
toe clip pedals
32+ spoke wheels 20mm deep or less

Replicas are allowed. All vintage riders must wear the official race jersey and a modern helmet – sorry, no wool jerseys or leather (“hairnet style”) helmets.

Participants in the Vintage Category will also be ranked in the competitive categories Individual/Team or Him & Her. The Vintage Category rewards style and not performance.

A jury at the finish will choose the best three vintage bikes and award prizes by Selle San Marco.

Simply register for Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York and tick the box “GFNY Vintage”, whether you plan to ride the 100 miles or 50 miles. If you are already registered, just show up with your vintage racing bike!
