Gran Fondo del Capitano became the first Italian gran fondo to cancel their 2021 event and reschedule for 2022 due to the ongoing pandemic.

It marks the second year in a row the race has been cancelled.

“It is with immense regret, but also with a deep spirit of responsibility, that the organizational staff communicates the decision taken for this year,” the event announced via social media..

The 11th edition of the race was scheduled for 13 June 2021 in the  Casentinesi Forests National Park.

The 2022 race is now tentatively rescheduled for 12 June 2022.

Fortunately, the event has a great cancellation and refund policy.  Riders who registered for the 2020 or 2021 race may move their starting position to 2022 or obtain a full refund  by simply sending a request via the website
