The Gran Fondo World Series returns to the Tour of Cambridgeshire once again in 2022. The Gran Fondo gives everyone, including those who have little or no race experience, the chance to give-it-a-go and compete against others in the same Masters age group. It gives you the chance to qualify and ride for your nation at the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships Road Race.

The Gran Fondo is held on fully closed roads and is a mass participation event with a mass start. All results from the Gran Fondo are determined by chip time.

The fastest 20% of riders in each Masters age group (across both the Road Race and Gran Fondo) will be invited to ride for their nation at the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
