Gran Fondo World Tour® ROUVY Challenge - Race #2 on Coll de Beixalis on Apr 27th

Andorra la Vella, Andorra / April 23rd, 2021 The Gran Fondo World Tour (GFWT®) has managed to continue to operate globally with its bold digital transformation, overcoming the uncertainty caused by the continuing Covid related travel restrictions. It has expanded the number of events in the Tour and included new virtual events to the 2021 calendar.

“We have just 5 days to go for the second event of the year in the virtual format. The new era of virtual cycling is here and we embrace it to offer you alternative options to your events, in these complicated times of “post Corona era”, says Dani Buyo, CEO of Gran Fondo World Tour ®.

The race will take place on ROUVY’s 6.7km AR course of Col de Beixalis in Andorra. It may be short but consists of an impressive  559 m elevation. Riders will have the chance to earn bonus points for the final GranFondo World Tour®  ranking. This will enable them to earn their qualification directly to the semi final event of the first Gran Fondo World ® Virtual Championship ®  with a 3.000 USD cash prize pool waiting to be claimed in November 2021.

Broadcast: The race will be streamed live with professional commentary in English here and Spanish here, and here on the GranFondo World Tour®  racing dashboard on granfondoguide.com. The broadcasting will start with 2 journalists driving the action, Sergio Perela (DAZN) and Antoni Alix (Eurosport analyst). The special program will showcase connections with different cyclists, present the calendar and will telecast the GFWT Rouvy Andorra Challenge event live.
