About the Colnago Gran Fondo National e-Fondo Series 

The Colnago Gran Fondo National Series today announced the event schedule for the upcoming 9-event E-Fondo Series. The first e-sports cycling competition to feature timed segments, the series leverages RGT Cycling’s innovative “Magic Roads” to recreate GFNS’s real-world courses in a virtual environment. The E-Fondo Series will run from February 7, 2021 through March 7, 2021 with multiple opportunities for riders to compete on each course, and the opportunity to qualify for the 2021 USA Cycling Gran Fondo National Championship event in Asheville, North Carolina on July 18, 2021.

The schedule of events offers both weekday and weekend opportunities for riders to complete events. On each event date there will be three separate start times, so riders can select a time of day that works for them.

-  E-Fondo Florida – Sunday, February 7
-  E-Fondo Georgia – Thursday, February 11
-  Highlands E-Fondo – Sunday, February 14
-  E-Fondo Asheville – Tuesday, February 16

Colnago Gran Fondo National Series Event Director, Reuben Kline, chose to create the first E-Fondo Series with RGT because of the simulator’s focus on realistic rider dynamics. He added, “We wanted the indoor and outdoor experiences on GFNS courses to be as similar as possible, and realistic in-game physics is what RGT does best. They were also excited to integrate our timed-section competition format, complete with on-screen graphics and tracking rider results over multiple events.”

Riders can register for E-Fondo Series events for free.

Riders can register today for a free RGT account and get your legs ready to ride before the series begins.
