Cycling: Entries reopen for Gran Fondo IoM due to demand

Limited places available, say organisers

Entries have reopened for a major cycling event taking place on the Isle of Man next month.

Gran Fondo Isle of Man 2022 has confirmed it's taking entries for the event again due to the level of demand.

However, organisers say places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come first-serve basis.

Gran Fondo IoM is taking place this year on the weekend of the 16-17 July.

Across both days, five different races or events will take place on closed roads around the Island.

They'll range from the 137km Gran Fondo on the Sunday (17 July) down to the family-friendly 1km Minisculo Fondo around Mooragh Park on the Saturday (16 July).

Once again, there will also be a UCI Individual Time Trial event across 9km on a section of the Snaefell Mountain Course on closed roads.

Those involved will be able to use the event to qualify for the Time Trial at the UCI Gran Fondo World Series Final in Italy.

Meanwhile, details on how to enter the Manx event are available HERE.
