2023 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships will crown 20 new world champions


The first day of the 2023 Gran Fondo World Championships, for the first time part of the combined UCI Cycling World Championships with 13 disciplines held over 2 weeks all over Scotland, will crown 20 new world champions in their different age groups tomorrow in Perth.

The 87km mediofondo course will start first for all women over 50 and men over 60 with 807m of elevation and finish in Scone Palace, just outside Perth.

The 159km granfondo starts a bit later with all categories starts split with 5 minutes intervals. The 1927m of elevation are mainly in the middle section through the Scottish Highlands with three 5-7km climbs before coming back to Perth on flatter roads.

1878 riders have registered for the road races amongst which UCI president David Lappartient, but also former pro riders as Jeannie Longo (defending world champion in both time trial and road racing in her category), Mario Cipollini and Alexander Vinokurov. The 68 different nationalities at the start makes this the most international UCI Gran Fondo World Championships ever.
