The organizer of Portugal’s most popular and largest gran fondo races has decided to postpone the entire series until 2021.
BIKESERVICE announced all five of their gran fondo races in 2020 are now cancelled. Originally, the races were just postponed from Spring/Summer until September and October, but the devastating COVID-19 pandemic and concern for rider safety now take precedence.
Announcing the change, BIKESERVICE wrote, “Our responsibility for health issues and the uncertainty of the events on the new dates, that is, the risk of further postponement and consequent disorder for everyone involved, led us to this decision.”
The cancelled races are Montemuro Granfondo by Trek, Love Tiles Douro Granfondo, Gerês Granfondo by Trek, Monção e Melgaço Granfondo and Breganca Granfondo.
Registered riders may move their bib to the 2021 race, another race or another rider.
2021 race dates:
04/11/2021 Montemuro Granfondo
05/09/2021 Douro Granfondo
06/06/2021 Gerês Granfondo
07/11/2021 Breganca Granfondo
09/19/2021 Monção e Melgaço Granfondo
