Granfondo Colnago Regulation

GRANFONDO 2.0 – NEW IN 2022

or the first time ever, you can experience a GRANFONDO as you prefer: within the Colnago Cycling Festival is born the GRANFONDO 2.0.

You have two possibilities to experience the Granfondo Colnago on April 3rd, 2022, the first is the Granfondo Classic and the second the Granfondo Crono.

What’s the difference?

If you choose to participate in the Granfondo Classic nothing will change compared to the previous editions. The novelty of the 2022 edition is the Granfondo Crono: you will be able to start quietly and use all your energy on the uphill time trials, two for the long track and two on the medium track; you will enter in the ranking of the sum of the climbs.

See the complete regulation in point 5.
