Granfondo Felice Gimondi, "La Felice Gimondi"

The 15th edition of the Granfondo Felice Gimondi will be moving to April in 2010 from its traditonal start in May. The Alpini are having their national convention in Bergamo the 8th and 9th of May forcing the change. The granfondo will be held on April 25th.

The official name of the granfondo is also being permanently changed to "La Felice Gimondi". The three courses of 95.7 km, 134.5 km and 165.3 km will remain the same.

In 2011 the granfondo will return to May, on Sunday, 9 May.
