It’s our goal at GFNY COZUMEL to stage you at the start according to your fitness. That way, you are around the riders that ride at your level from the beginning which improves your experience.

A. The following riders are qualified for a front corral start:

  1. Riders who finished in the top 10% of their Age Group (Gran Fondo distance only) at GFNY in 2015, 2016, 2017 and are signed up by OCTOBER 9, 2017. The full list of qualified riders HERE. If you are on that list and registered, you are all set and don’t have to do anything.
  2. Riders who are not qualified but have a USAC license (or international equivalent) Men Cat 1-3 (Masters 1-2) and Women Cat 1-2 (Masters 1) and are signed up by OCTOBER 9, 2017. Please send a photocopy of your actual license as well as proof that you have been racing in your category in 2015 or 2016 to no later than OCTOBER 19, 2017.

GFNY reserves the right to limit the front corral to Men Cat 3 and Women Cat. 2 or higher if there are space constraints.

A. Following the front corral, riders will be lined up by age group. Your bib number or bracelet will indicate your start corral. You can always move further back if you want to start with a friend but not further ahead.

All Him and Her teams will be staged in the second corral.
