GFNY Costa Rica :

Is a personal cycling endurance challenge, where you compete against others, the clock, the weather and yourself. There are two distances to choose from depending on your skill level and preference from a 90km to 150km. Everyone from a competitive rider to a recreational rider can enjoy this event. GFNY races are determined by the different types of challenges they offer from steep climbs to gusty winds or all combined.

The GFNY original slogan BE A PRO FOR A DAY is the true meaning of what all participants feel at all GFNY races which is a true sensation of what a professional cyclist would feel on the race course. This includes all of the following:


        • Mass start.
        • Closed or moderated roads by Police from start to finish.
        • Individual chip timing from start to finish with prizes at the end for all category winners.
        • Fans cheering you on the road as you ride by to the finish line.
        • Aid stations filled with food that the pros would dream of eating on the course.
        • Mechanical support both rolling and at all aid stations.
        • Podium awards ceremony.
