Colorado National Bank Palisade Gran Fondo

February 02, 2017

Colorado National Bank Palisade Gran Fondo

A great day in the saddle and in the park.

When: June 3, 2017
Where: Palisade, Colorado
Registration: Early Registration discount ends March 1, 2017.

We hope you are enjoying your winter season - on or off the bike! It has been heartening to see several previous year participants jumping on the early registration bandwagon for the 3rd Annual Palisade Gran Fondo. This tells us that we are becoming an early season tradition in Colorado!

The Palisade Gran Fondo is a fully supported, timed road cycling event on rolling terrain through picturesque orchards and vineyards of Western Colorado. Climb up onto the rugged Reeder and Purdy Mesas on back roads past farms and ranches. Attack the course for a podium spot or relax and enjoy the epic scenery–the choice is yours!

This event offers you a choice of two classic Western Colorado road rides–the 72 mile Palisade Gran Fondo or the 40 mile Palisade Piccolo Fondo. We will roll out at with a neutralized 4-mile warm-up spin along the Colorado River before you are cut loose to attack the 38 Road hill and traverse Palisade’s orchards and vineyards all of the way to Whitewater at your own best pace. Piccolo riders will turn around here and retrace their route, attacking each of the punchy rollers in the opposite direction. Palisade Gran Fondo riders will continue on to be faced with skirting the shoulder of the Grand Mesa as they climb Reeder and Purdy Mesas to 6100 feet.

This year we are gearing up for the best Palisade Gran Fondo yet with several new sponsors- including clothing sponsor PACTIMO. PACTIMO will supply winners jerseys for our podium, custom socks for all participants and we will soon be offering a beautiful custom jersey and jacket for you to purchase online.

If you have not yet registered- please jump on it. Right now we are offering last year's early registration prices! We want you to get in on this great deal- but prices go up March 1st. Head over to BikeReg and be sure to tell a friend!

"Most people have experienced injuries or circumstances that have prevented us from riding temporarily and know well the frustration and fear that comes along with those dark days. We count the minutes and hours until we can get back out there, doing what we need to do."

"Cyclists are a tight bunch. My friends and associates are, like my social feeds, filled with people I know or have met through cycling. We look out for one another; care about what's going on in each other's lives; we congratulate, commiserate, and compete."

Perhaps I’d set my sights a little high but I’d now targeted TCR as my first real venture into endurance racing. The rules are simple, the clock starts at 2200hr in Geraardsbergen, Belgium, and stops when you cross the finish line in Meteora, Greece, some 4,000km later having visited the four checkpoints.
