The headquarters of the BGY Airport Granfondo moves to the “home” of Santini
The BGY Airport Granfondo gets a makeover. The cycling event scheduled for Sunday, 5th May 2024 in Bergamo and held under the aegis of the Italian Cycling Federation, introduces an important logistic novelty for the 2024 edition.
The new headquarters of the event, which on Saturday 4th May will host the distribution of numbers and race packs, the Expo Village, the press room and the secretariat, will move from Lazzaretto in Bergamo to the new city headquarters of Santini Cycling Wear, in via Zanica 14, in the Malpensata district.
A choice that further strengthens the link between the Santini family company and the Granfondo that take place in Bergamo. In fact, Santini Cycling Wear, the leading clothing company in the cycling industry that, in addition to the International Cycling Union (UCI), Tour de France, Tour de France Femmes and great Monument Classics such as Paris-Roubaix, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Fleche Wallonne, has always produced the special collector’s jerseys of the BGY Airport Granfondo.
The company’s new headquarters will open its doors to the thousands of cyclists and enthusiasts who will reach the city of Bergamo for the event. With a large and comfortable indoor and outdoor area and pleasant green spaces, it can be considered the new home of cycling in the city of Bergamo, so it is well suited to become the beating heart of the BGY Airport Granfondo, in the hours preceding and following the competitive event that will cover the main roads and valleys of the province of Bergamo.
The area will be open to the public and participants on Saturday 4th May from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. There will also be entertainment and food areas for guests and the public. On Sunday, 5th May, the traditional area of Lazzaretto di Bergamo, near the start and finish line in via Marzabotto, will once again be colourful and light up the BGY Airport Granfondo 2024 event.
THE NEW RACE NUMBERS AREA IS DISTANT FROM:
- Highway A4 Milan-Venice Exit: 1,027 metres
- Milan Bergamo Airport: 2,689 metres
- Bergamo Train Station: 766 metres
- Bergamo city centre (City Hall): 1,286 metres
- Start line BGY Airport Granfondo 2,838 metres
