HIGHLIGHTS

If you’ve qualified for this wonderful event and are serious about putting in a good showing, you’ll need to be prepared!  Many of you will be traveling a great distance to be in CANADA.

The tour program we have put together will get you ready and help you optimize your performance in the event(s) for which you’ve qualified.

The Medium and long packages will spend the first few days in the Whistler mountain region, allowing the riders to test the final part of the race course while enjoying the beautiful ski resort.

The last 6 days will stay Downtown in Vancouver, next to the race village and start line.

One More Ride was the co-organizer of the WCS UCI event in Varese, and Andrea personally designed all the race courses, so we know how to support you out there! Andrea and the staff have already been to Vancouver and Whistler to check out our hotels, logistic and race courses! Come early to acclimatize to end of summer North American weather and ride the race course several times with Andrea, without pushing too hard. You’ll get ready for the race while enjoying the beautiful region of British Columbia. 

The area is perfect for non-riders as well, so you can bring your family or supporters.

You’ll get professional massage, mechanical support, private feed stations, and much more for the UCI Granfondo World Championships!

 YOUR 

 RIDE 

WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?

The experience is built for all riders who have qualified for the UCI World Championship by finishing in the top 20% of their age group in one of the previous UCI World Series events. We also welcome riders able to ride for 4-5 hours a day and just want to enjoy the lakes region without racing. The days leading up to the races we will do a course recon at a moderate pace and ensure proper recovery after each ride; no high intensity unless you want to!

We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride at his own pace. Our team of expert guides  will support each rider during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy.

All cyclists interested in granfondo, race atmosphere, and magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN

Vancouver is located in relatively flat region, but the course will end up at Whistler Ski resort, so expect a big climb at the end!  

The ITT course is for specialist, so the fast riders: basically an out and back on a straight road, gently uphill first then downhill back into town! Bring your disc wheel!

Team Relay is a 2 km town circuit; a fast race with 4 technical turns. Highly recommended, so put together your national team and register!
