Welcome back to the GF STRADE BIANCHE in MARCH with a new course!
The Gran Fondo route still corresponds mostly to the Women Elite race, now it is 142,5 km with 10 gravel sectors for a total of 54,7 km of white roads. Click HERE to find the new route, profiles, timetables and gpx files.
The Organizing Committee, following the guidelines and case studies that refer to the latest provisions issued by the Government between the end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022 and to the Federal Health Protocol of the Italian Cycling Federation (FCI), has chosen to request the mandatory possession of the Reinforced Green Pass (or Super Green Pass) for all participants of the Enel Green Power Gran Fondo Strade Bianche.
As reported by the website www.dgc.gov.it digital platform of reference for the issuance of the green COVID-19 certification, by Reinforced Green Pass: we only mean the COVID-19 Green Certification for vaccination or recovery. The reinforced green pass does not therefore include carrying out a rapid or molecular antigen test. Only certificates in Italian or English will be accepted.
All participants must present themselves in person at the start number pick-up. It will not be possible to delegate third parties for the pick-up. It will be possible to delegate third parties only for the pick up of the start bag and jersey without the start number and therefore for the participant not to participate in the event (click HERE to download the form for the delegation only for the start bag pick-up).
