|About This Event|
For the first time in Southern California, fans and avid cyclists will get the opportunity to hang out with, ride alongside or get a signed jersey from the most popular cyclist on the planet, Peter Sagan.
The Southern California Sagan Fondo Gran Roadie-Oh version, will actually be a three-day collection of different ways to get to know Peter Sagan on the heels of his recording-breaking seventh Green Jersey victory at the Tour de France.
At the start/finish village in the center of North City/San Marcos on both Saturday and Sunday, participants will be able to enjoy pre- and post-race festivities from 70 vendors and local beers with Sagan, and those opting into the VIP event Saturday will be treated to a memorable evening of fun with Peter, other cycling legends, and the event organizers known for their exceptional experiential escapades.
The Gran Roadie-Oh on Sunday offers three different distances for riders to choose from (50 km, 100 km & 150 km). The unique routes take riders through the hills and valleys of beautiful North County San Diego. Sagan is opting for the longest 150-km/93-mile route.
‘Green Jersey Go-Around’ Competition
Most uniquely, the longer route will feature the ‘Green Jersey Go-Around’ competition, a feature that all 150-km riders can compete in. In honor of Sagan’s seven Green Jerseys, there will be seven, roughly 1-km Sprint Sectors for riders in various age categories to compete in, plus several secret Sprint Sectors that represent Peter’s future Green Jerseys. Winners will be those with the lowest cumulative times across ‘all’ the Sprint Sectors of the ‘Go-Around.’ These victorious riders will receive a signed event Green Jersey from Peter. All three courses begin together with the 100km and 150km diverging after about 16-miles. While not too hilly, the longest course features not only the signature Sprint Sectors but a variety of punchy, rolling and extended climbs to keep everyone on their toes.
Sagan will be on hand all three days to pose for selfies, sign autographs, mingle and present awards to the fastest riders in the ‘Go-Around.’ (Winners receive a signed event Green Jersey!) Plus, everyone gets a chance to ride with Sagan on Sunday.
