The Luxembourg cyclist from Mondorf-les-Bains, Frank Schleck in a new announcement, has said that he would be organizing a mass-participation cycle race, known as the Schleck Gran Fondo, on Saturday, 20 May 2017.
Schleck, who announced his retirement from professional cycling at the end of the previous season, has decided to share his love and passion for cycling after 13 years of engaging professionally in the sport.
The UCI Gran Fondo World Series qualifier he is organizing would hold on his training routes in Luxembourg and also in the beautiful Moselle region as well.
The Schleck Gran Fondo is a mass participation cycle sport event. It is a qualifier race towards the UCI Gran Fondo World championships that holds in Albi, France.
Riders who end up finishing within the top 25% of their Masters Age/Gender Classification will then be invited to participate in the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships as well as receive a UGFWS Qualifiers medal. Schleck and some other of his team mates would feature in the event as well.
