The Gran Fondo World Tour (GFWT®) is aware that there is uncertainly early on in the 2021 season calendar post COVID, as countries gear up to roll out vaccines.

Understanding this predicament, the GFWT® has expanded the number events including virtual events on the 2021 calendar, realising that International air travel will be restricted for some time too.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the GFWT® has been able to continue operating globally with a bold digital transformation.

Digital transformation will be the next big challenge for cyclists around the world to enter into the new eSPORTS era."

He continued,  “We are introducing a new Endurance GFWT® Series consisting of longer distance events for long distance Gran Fondo fanatics.  We are working hard to include even more events in the coming months with longer distance Gran Fondo event and also a new addition of Gravel Fondo events to offer more options of our growing community of over 60,000 cyclists worldwide"
