2nd edition of GFNY Kuala Lumpur this Sunday

The capital city of Malaysia provides the dramatic backdrop for this GFNY race



This Sunday, GFNY Kuala Lumpur offers racers a 129.1 km long course which will take riders from the heart of the city, into the hilly outskirts and back to Jalan Raja for a total of 1726m of climbing.  The finish line will be at the iconic Sultan Abdul Samad Building.

A huge thank you to the city of Kuala Lumpur to make this race in their metropolis happen,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. “GFNY riders get to enjoy an incredible experience on roads fully closed to traffic amidst the sky scraper of Malaysia’s capital.

Race week activities include the GFNY Festival, Expo and registration on Saturday.  The capital city of Malaysia will offer a wide variety of food and shopping options which will excite and surprise GFNY riders, families and friends who get to experience everything from glitzy shopping malls and fine dining to markets and street food.  Kuala Lumpur is a true gem of Southeast Asia.
