Whistler GranFondo registration opens today

Bike frameset up for grabs in registration contest



Registration for the 2014 edition of the RBC GranFondo Whistler will get underway at noon today, Monday, Oct. 15, although Founding Members - riders that were in the inaugural ride in 2010 - have been able to register since Friday.

As an added incentive to sign up early, all Founding Riders that sign up for the event by Oct. 31 will have the chance to win a 2012 CervŽlo Argle R5 VWD frameset signed by Giro d'Italia champion Ryder Hesjedal.

The early bird rate of $225 is in effect until Mar. 15, 2013. People who sign up for that date are also eligible for the Deferral Guarantee Policy, which gives the rider the opportunity to skip 2014 for whatever reason and instead ride the course the following year.

The RBC GranFondo Whistler starts in Vancouver on Georgia Street and finishes in Whistler, a distance of 122km.
