Inaugural Michelob Ultra GFNY Miami this Sunday

GFNY Miami will serve as the 2024 GFNY North American Championship



This Sunday, Michelob Ultra GFNY Miami offers riders an entirely flat and fast racecourse of 70.7 miles completely closed to traffic. The North American Championship race starts and finishes at Miccosukee Resort & Casino on the western edge of Miami at the portal to the Everglades.  Race week activities will be held at Miccosukee.

Miami is a hotbed for a lot of fun things and that definitely also includes road cycling, so we’re proud to be able to host a GFNY there,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme. 

Racers from abroad and across the US are aiming for the crown, including GFNY champions Flavio DeLuna (Mexico), Steven Nino (Colombia), Edwin Morel (USA) and Ricardo Pichetta (Italy).  

GFNY Championship races draw a larger and more competitive field due their elevated prestige and the fact that not the top 10% but 20% of finishers in each age group will gain a Qualifier Corral slot for all GFNY races for the next 380 days.

Meanwhile overall champions will be rewarded with flights to and accommodation at the 12th Michelob Ultra GFNY World Championship NYC on May 19, 2024.
