The inaugural “Win-the-Fight” Garrett County Gran Fondo cycling event will be held June 26 and 27 in the county. Organized by the Joanna M. Nicolay Melanoma Foundation, producers of the SavageMan Triathlon Festival, the event will be a long-distance, mass-participation, cycling event suitable for professional, amateur, and recreational cyclists of all abilities. It is not a race, but is a fundraiser for the melanoma foundation.

A “gran fondo” is a celebrated tradition in Italian cycling culture, according to Greg Safko, president of the Joanna M. Nicolay Foundation. While registration is just $40 for the two-day gran fondo, participants are encouraged to bring in donations for the foundation. See story on today’s sports link. Photo by Michael Bello Portraits.
