Valley First Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan 2011

On Sunday, July 10th, 2011, just a week before the RBC GranFondo Kelowna, the inaugural Valley First Granfondo Axel Merckx Okanagan (VFGFAMO) will host more than 2,500 cyclists of all skill levels in a ride that will take them on a heart-thumping journey through the picturesque southern Okanagan region.

Riders have the option of challenging themselves with the full Granfondo (160km) or Mediofondo (92km). All categories will feature our premier on-course support.

To add a little more ambiance to an already exciting weekend, the VFGFAMO is proud to host the 2011 B.C. Provincial Masters Road Race Championships (also known as the Girofondo). Approximately 100 of the province’s top-level Masters riders will race the Mediofondo course.

And to keep everyone safe, riders are encouraged to abide by the event rules and regulations, and traffic information will be continually updated.

Finally, the event weekend will also include the Piccolofondo (for the kids), the Granfondo Cycling Expo, Granfondo Wine Tasting in Penticton event, as well as countless other activities for you and your family.
