Noch 60 Tage bis zum 11. Gran Fondo Internazionale Felice Gimondi in Bergamo
It’s nearly Gran Fondo Internazionale Felice Gimondi and numbers prove it.
Beginning from 9th January, the official opening of entries, more than 2000 athletes entered their names for this race. According to this trend, about 4000 cyclists should recall “Milano-Sanremo 1974”, the Felice Gimondi’s victory linked to 2006 edition. In order to better celebrate this event, G.M.Sport invited some champions who were able to win that race in the past. Michele Dancelli (1970), Roger De Vlaeminck (1973, 1978, 1979), Giuseppe Saronni (1983), Francesco Moser (1984), Gianni Bugno (1990), Claudio Chiappucci (1991), Maurizio Fondriest (1993) and Mario Cipollini (2002): Bergamo is waiting for these famous names to celebrate Gimondi.
Professionalism and seriousness have always characterized Gran Fondo Internazionale Felice Gimondi. They have been confirmed again by belonging to UCI Golden Bike 2006. This circuit includes 8 events in just as many countries (South Africa, Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland and Germany), chosen according to strict technical-organisational rules. For the 2006 season, they propose the UCI Traveller’s Club. Registration fees are 30 euros and they include a UCI Traveller’s Club passport and a Santini jersey. Club members have the chance of becoming a “Gold Rider”: each race corresponds to a stamp on the passport, which can be filled in over a number of years. Once the passport has 8 stamps corresponding to the different events, the athlete becomes a “Gold Rider” and she/he will be able to access to the VIP area at each UCI Golden Bike race and other facilitations.
Gran Fondo Internazionale Felice Gimondi gives a prize to its loyal athletes. The 93 “Puntuali”, cyclists who took part in all the past editions, will start from the first gate, with guests, women, the first 100 classified in Gran Fondo 2005, the first 25 in Medio Fondo 2005 and the first 25 in Fondo 2005.
G.M.Sport is thinking about ExpoGimondi too, the fair which will be prepared at “Lazzaretto”, next to the Bergamo’s stadium. Societies interested in sport, free time and tourism will receive leaflets with all useful information about this event. Their stands will be a good chance to communicate with end consumers.
