The GF PINARELLO is a competitive/cyclosportive event, and therefore it is absolutely obligatory that riders respect the rules of the road. Riders passed by the “fine gara ciclistica” (“end of bike race”) vehicle continue in the event as touring cyclists but retain their race numbers. Riders must mount the race number with the transponder on their handlebars so it is visible and not rolled around the frame; the other number provided by the race organizers is to be pinned to the back of the jersey. These numbers may not be modified in any way.

A standards-compliant hard-shell helmet must be worn, buckled, for the duration of the event.

During the event, the roads are monitored by trained volunteer corner marshals, but the roads are nevertheless open to traffic and the rules of the road must absolutely be observed.


The GF PINARELLO is part of the Maglia Nera, Prestigio di Cicloturismo and Alé Challenge circuits; for the respective rules of these circuits, please visit the relevant official websites.

The event will take place regardless of weather conditions, except in the event of a natural disaster.



There will be checkpoints at the start, at the finish and at various unannounced locations along the two routes. The race jury and authorized staff will manage the checkpoints. Anyone who starts early or misses the check at the start will be excluded from the classification.


The individual and team classifications will be published on the granfondopinarello.com website in the days following the event.


During the event, a suitable number of mechanical and medical assistance vehicles, both mobile and at fixed locations, will be present along the routes, and assistance from private follow vehicles is not allowed, at risk of disqualification of the riders assisted. An emergency number, +39 3385649798, will be available for use only in the event of a serious emergency during the race; the 118 ambulance service and helicopter rescue will be called if needed.


Along the routes, feed zones (complete and/or hydration only) will be provided only for riders wearing race numbers.

Ecozones are an initiative to support sustainability and respect for the environment. Ecozones are areas for refuse collection near the feed zones; riders may throw bottles, snack wrappers and other trash only within these areas. The ecozones will be marked along the route with identical, easily recognizable signs. The organizers, in collaboration with the FCI race commissars and organization personnel, will monitor the event to ensure that riders do not throw trash along the route outside the ecozones. Any participant who demonstrates disrespectful behavior will be excluded from the event for a year.


Police and authorized race organization vehicles will precede and escort the participants during the race, on both routes. Only vehicles of the organization with the appropriate marking (such as lead vehicles, jury, race director and broom wagon) are authorized to be on the course.


Race organization and civil protection personnel will monitor intersections and dangerous locations in agreement and collaboration with law enforcement.


To avoid potential bike theft, participants should be extremely careful during the entire event and not leave their bikes unattended, including during the pasta party after the finish.


The organizers will provide a “broom wagon” service for participants who find themselves in difficulty. Riders must wait for the race organization vehicles that will take them to the finish area. The emergency number, +39 3385649798, can also be used for information about the location of the broom wagons.


The roads are open to vehicle traffic during the event, and thus it is absolutely obligatory to follow the rules of the road. Charges will be pressed against any unregistered riders who join the event and cause damage or accidents.


Anyone seen throwing trash on the road will be reported to the race jury and excluded from the final classification. All participants are asked to maintain respectful behavior in the start area and throughout the event.


Remember that the GF PINARELLO is an amateur race, and any issue not addressed by these rules is governed by the rules of the FCI national amateur cycling commission and the UCI. The race organization accepts no responsibility for any incident occurring before, during or after the event involving participants among themselves or with any third party.


Any claims must be presented to the race jury within the required time limit and accompanied by the fee specified in the FCI rules.
