After the postponement of the hundredth edition of the professional Tre Valli Varesine race due to COVID-19, the Cycling Society Alfredo Binda has decided to also postpone to 2021 the 5th edition of the UCI Gran Fondo Tre Valli Varesine world championship qualifying race scheduled 4 October in Varese, Italy.
“Our Gran Fondo is a party for all bicycle lovers . The word “party” itself gives the sense of aggregation, happiness and joy and this is not the time,” said Renzo Oldani, President of SC Binda. Adding, “But there is a great hope in our hearts: to be able to relive as soon as possible and at best the fun moments of our Gran Fondo Tre Valli Varesine returning to rejoice together with the thousands of fans who come from all over the world to compete on our world tracks, among the safest internationally, and appreciate the beauty of our territory, the Garden City and the province of the Seven Lakes.”
The event has consistently been a UCI Gran Fondo World Series Qualifying race for the past 5 years and also hosted the 2018 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
Cancellation of this year’s Tre Valli Varesine means riders will to not be able to use it to qualify for the 2021 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships scheduled to take place at Granfondo Banjaluka in Bosnia and Herzegovina in September 2021.
