 The Golden Gran Fondo launched in 2013 by Gran Fondo National Championship Series® (GFNCS); ranked one of the Top 10 Gran Fondos in the nation by Outside Magazine

 The race offers courses covering journeys through the legendary Rocky Mountain foothill roads of Jefferson, Gilpin, and Boulder counties

 Highlights include picturesque back-roads through rugged terrain, some of the finest gravel roads you can ride, with spectacular views across the Front Range, climbs towards the Continental Divide via the Peak-to-Peak Highway with 12,000 cumulative feet of climbing, and returning to Golden.

 Gran Fondo World Tour (GFWT), the international cyclo-sportive circuit, has selected the this as an American stop in its world-series schedule. 

 Riders taking part in the Golden event can collect points in both the GFNCS and GFWT championships.

 Set for August 27, 2017, the Golden Gran Fondo joins GFWT events in Spain, Kuwait, Italy, Norway and Kazakhstan to make up their schedule(?)
