October 15/12 15:42 pm - RBC GranFondo Whistler Registration Opened Today

Posted by Editoress on 10/15/12

Registration for the fourth annual RBC GranFondo Whistler, taking place on Saturday, September 7th, 2013, opened today, October 15th, at 12:00 pm, Pacific Standard Time.

“The feedback we’ve received from participants this year has been incredible,” said Kevin Thomson, co-founder of GranFondo Canada. “Excitement for road cycling is shown in the passion we see on event day and on training rides throughout the year. Now is the time for cyclists to commit to their goals for 2013.”

Founding Riders of inaugural GranFondo Canada events will have first crack at registration starting today (October 12th) at 9:00 am, PST. All Founding Riders signed up for the event by October 31st will have a chance to win a 2012 Cervélo Argyle R5 VWD frameset signed by Canada’s most celebrated cyclist and 2012 Giro d’Italia champion, Ryder Hesjedal.

The early bird rate of $225 is in effect until March 15th, 2013. Those signed up before that date will also be eligible for the new Deferral Guarantee Policy, which grants participants the opportunity to defer their entry to the following year.

Event entry includes:

• Two-day pre-ride bicycle and lifestyle Expo in Vancouver.
• A dedicated lane width for cycling for the entire ride from downtown Vancouver to Whistler resort.
• Timing chip for all riders. Track your performance on overall ride time and on pre-determined course sections.
