FAQ

1 How do I enter? 

You must register at granfondodelgallonero.it by midnight on 15th September 2021.

Who can register?

  • Members of FCI and sports promotional bodies recognised by the FCI for 2021.
  • Members of associations not recognised by the FCI who – at the moment of registration – hold a Bike Card, their own association’s membership card, and a medical certificate to practise competitive cycling, valid for the date of the event, as stated in the terms shown on the FCI website (www.federciclismo.it). These documents must be included by the cyclist during registration on the winningtime.it website, with their username and password, in the personal area, “dati squadra” section.
  • Overseas amateur cyclists whose membership is in order for 2021 for their national cycling federation, recognised by the UCI, and holding a medical certificate to practise competitive cycling – E-Health certificate – valid for the day of the event. The English-language copy of the certificate can be downloaded from the website granfondodelgallonero.it, “Registration” section.

Participants must bring their membership card or a copy of it on the day of the event, in case of checks by the Federation judges.

  • Non-members of associations with a medical certificate to practise competitive cycling, who must buy a one-day FCI membership for third party insurance cover during the event, at a cost of €15 to be paid on registration for the event.

This year participants must also have a Green Pass or:

  • certificate of recovery from Covid-19 valid for the day of the event (within 6 months)
  • certificate of Covid-19 vaccination (full vaccination completed)
  • rapid antigen test or PCR (the certificate is valid for 48 hours after release and available on request in paper or digital form, from the public health facilities, authorised and guaranteed private facilities, or pharmacies that carried out the test, or the GP / paediatrician of choice. The certificate must be valid in order to obtain a race number on 18th or 19th September and take part in the race on 19th September).

2 Is my 2020 medical certificate valid for the 2021 edition?
A medical certificate is valid for one year from issue. This means all riders must hold a medical certificate still valid on the day of the event, 19th September 2021.

3 Do you have to be a member of an association to take part in the race?
No, if you are not a member of an association you can just present a medical certificate for competitive sports, and your one-day FCI card to guarantee third-party insurance cover.

4 How many routes are there?

6 Is the chip compulsory?
The Winning Time chip is compulsory. If necessary it can be rented at a cost of €5 when picking up the race pack.

The 2021 race pack includes a 75cl bottle of Chianti Classico wine and gourmet food products to serve with it, and sponsor gadgets.

8 Can I pick up someone’s else’s race pack?
Yes, if you have their authorisation. The delegator must however show their Green Pass or equivalent certificates (see point 1 “How Do I Enter”) before entering the grid.

9 Village
Race packs can be picked up at the Village only on Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm and on Sunday from 7-9 am. Access exclusively granted to registered race participants, on showing their Green Pass or equivalent certificates (see point 1 “How Do I Enter”) and temperature measurement.

10 Village facilities: showers and bike park
There will not be a shower service or supervised bike park for this edition.

11 Final refreshments
At the finish line there will be refreshments with water and mineral salts.
A few metres after the finish, cyclists can pick up a packed lunch (sandwich with prime Tuscan roast pork and a bottle of water), to be consumed outside the finish area.
Unfortunately current restrictions prevent the organisation of the “Gourmet food and wine Village” which has always been a feature of our end-of-race lunch.

12 Prize-giving
