Cycling legend Felice Gimondi used to say that women are the real drawing power either of sport and life. Same as the great Italian former champion, the organizers of GF Gimondi – Bianchi’s – the event celebrating its 18th edition, after an off-year – always manifested the same attentive approach to the women’s cycling. Giuseppe Manenti and his staff couldn’t disregard the growing interest around women’s cycling and decided to incentive female riders’ participation, with the aim to reach a 10% quota of women starters on Sunday, May 4th in Bergamo.
On the occasion of International Women Day, on Saturday, March 8th, women have the opportunity to enrol by paying a reduced registration fee of 20 euro instead of 30. “Our organization and Felice Gimondi have women’s participation close to our heart – Manenti explained. – In recent years, women brought major successes to the Italian cycling. We have set ourselves a very ambitious goal, a 10% female quota, and feel confident to be successful”.
Women riders also wrote Gran Fondo Gimondi – Bianchi’s history somehow, firstly Maria Canins, winner of the first two editions (1996-1997).
Registrations for the 18th Granfondo Felice Gimondi – Bianchi can be filed through the online application by credit card on official website www.felicegimondi.com, otherwise by wire transfer, postal bulletin or directly at the organization headquarter in Bergamo (Via G. Da Campione, 24/c).
