GFNY announces second race in Brazil

GFNY is back in Conservatória on August 4, 2024



GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series brings GFNY Conservatória back to the 2024 race schedule on August 4 after a five year hiatus. The competitive long distance is 130.1km with 2533m of climbing.  Start and finish will be hosted at Rua das Flores.    This route will lead riders through coffee plantations and then on rolling green hills offering breathtaking views.

We’re very happy to be back in Conservatoria,” says GFNY President Lidia Fluhme. “With its proximity to Rio de Janeiro yet being in spectacular nature, Conservatoria is an ideal host for GFNY. It’s the perfect weekend getaway for riders and their families.”

Conservatória is one of the five districts within the municipality of Valença and is located in a picturesque region that was the heart of Brazil’s coffee industry in the mid 1800s.  “The CIty of Serenades” is also known for its stunning nature with rolling green hills, waterfalls and rainforest covered mountains.
