The Largest Granfondos by # Finishers

The November issue of CT, which in my opinion is the best Italian magazine covering the granfondo world, reports that the largest granfondos based on the number of finishers for this year (up until 7 October) were:
GF Nove Colli 9,517
Maratona dles Dolomites 7,204
GF Selle Italia 3,592
GF Pinarello 3,508
GF Felice Gimondi 3,119
Dieci Colli Bolognesi 2, 683
GF Marco Pantani 2,536
GF Campagnolo 2,532
L'Eroica 2,300 (participants)
Citta della Spezia 2,201
GF del Prosecco 1,950
GF Damiano Cunego 1,906
GF della Versillia 1,656
Pedalando Con... 1,646
GF Colnago 1,626

GF Dolci Terre di Novi 1,568
Giro Valli Monregalesi 1,559

Besides coverage of recent races and schedules for the major granfondos for 2008, this month's issue also had a 14 page report on L'Eroica (where riders go vintage) which is still something I would like to enter in the future.
