Gran Fondo New York extends partnership with Elite

Gran Fondo New York extends its long-standing partnership with Italian company Elite

Since 2012, all GFNY riders receive a custom designed GFNY bike bottle. It adds to the experience of the race’s motto “Be a Pro for a Day” because Elite sponsors most of the World Tour Teams with that same bottle.

The GFNY-themed Elite bike bottle has become a hallmark of our Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York. GFNY riders are eagerly looking forward to the May race to get their GFNY Elite bottle, and they use it proudly throughout the rest of their season,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “While we change the design annually to be in line with the race’s theme, the bottle’s fluo green shows boldly that its owner did GFNY.

But GFNY’s collaboration with Elite doesn’t stop there. Since 2012, cyclists who use Elite’s indoor trainers have had the chance to ride the Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York course, year round, wherever they are. And as of 2015, with the creation of Elite’s RealVideo platform, cyclists will be able to ride all GFNY World races on Elite’s RealVideo system for free, starting with GFNY Mont Ventoux 2015, the first amateur race to end atop the famous mountain, and the first GFNY Championship qualifier race of the 2015/16 season.

Campagnolo Gran Fondo New York is a unique experience for riders from all over the world,” says Nicoletta Sartore of Elite. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with this prestigious event.
