The UCI Gran Fondo Switzerland is open to all cyclist, licensed or not, who are physically able to complete the course (108 km and 2600m of climbing). Riders who finish the race in the first 20% of their age group will qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Vancouver, Canada in 2020; however, the main objective is to challenge yourself on the roads of the Alpes vaudoises and enjoy it!
Participants must be in good health and properly trained. A license and/or a medical certificate is not required to participate in cycling for all events in Switzerland.
However, the organization highly recommends that participants consult a doctor to confirm their ability to perform this type of effort.
Each participant must have their own insurance (accident insurance and civil liability insurance), covering bodily injury and property damages on Swiss territory.
