Offering the only gran fondo race series in the United States with an overall season-long competition, Gran Fondo National Series (GFNS) has released their 2020 schedule.
With events from East Coast to West Coast, the series awards points based on short timed-segments, usually climbs, rather than start-to-finish time like traditional gran fondos. A rider’s best three finishes are used to award overall GFNS Championship jerseys.
