The UCI Granfondo World Series is a series of UCI-sanctioned races held all over the world. Some 25-30 qualifier events will qualify the top 20% in each age group to the UCI Granfondo World Championships, where the champions are awarded with the coveted rainbow jersey.
While promoting high-level competition for Masters and Amateurs, one of the aims of this series is the globalization of "Cycling for All". With that in mind, the geographical spread of the events is very important, along with strict organisational and sporting criteria, and a tourism interest.
The UCI Gran Fondo World Series concept is focusing on both very competitive riders who either just miss the skills and talent to become a Pro Elite rider or who still want to compete at a high level at a later age, but also to fun riders who like to keep fit and finish the event.
The Isle of Man will join established international destinations such as the traditional European Cycling heartlands of France, Switzerland, Italy and Luxembourg as well as global events in the USA, Canada, Japan and Brazil in hosting a UCI World Series round in 2022.
