The biggest amateur race of the year is the UCI Granfondo World Champs & 2020 sees the most exciting edition ever in Vancouver / Whistler. Sign up & stay with fellow GB Team riders. Our support team is in place to provide you with everything you need to ride at your peak including guided warm up rides, pro level mechanics & pre race briefings from Olympic and World Champ medallist Bryan Steel.
We have 4 and 6 night packages with the first half of the stay in Vancouver (our base is one of the closest hotels to Stanley Park) and the last half in beautiful Whistler. Unlike most years, the Granfondo is open to everyone and not just those that qualify
It's the one time of the year riders get to be part of a big team. Meet fellow GB riders, warm up together, eat together and celebrate at the end all together. We take over the whole hotel and make it a GB rider village for the UCI Granfondo weekend.
We are honoured to have the legendary Bryan Steel lead our support team in Vancouver. Bryan has won Olympic & World Championship medals in his long cycling career, is now a leading coach and still rides the UCI Granfondo World Champs each year. He leads our warm up rides and gives his expert advice in our pre race briefing the night before the race.
