Cache Gran Fondo joins the UCI Gran Fondo World Series in 2019 and will be a qualifying event for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in September 2019.
It gives riders in Utah a chance to win a place on the start line at next year's world championship event in Poznan, Poland.
Always the 2nd Saturday in July, the Cache Gran Fondo provides mostly-flat courses from 38 to 113 miles (except for a hill challenge in each) through one of northern Utah's best-kept cycling secrets, Cache Valley, Utah.
In all there are 19 qualifying events around the globe in the UCI Gran Fondo Series with Cache being one of five additions, which span the globe. Moscow, Brisbane in Australia, Rio de Janeiro and Viré en Maconnais in France are the other new events.
Riders that finish in the top 25% of their age category at series event qualify for the World Championship finale.
Registration is up compared to last year with over 2,300 riders from 59 countries registered thus far.
The Bucket Rider, John Woodson, will be reporting on the ride for granfondo.com.
