Qualification is valid for 380 days from Qualification date at every GFNY World race. To check your Qualification Status, please visit your GFNY.cc account.
The ways to earn a Qualifier Corral starting position:
(1) Riders who finished in the top 20% of their Age Group at the previous year's GFNY World Championship, in the top 20% at a GFNY Regional Championship or in the top 10% of any GFNY World event.
Your qualification status can be found in your GFNY.cc account and also in the race results at gfny.cc/results. You will see a <Q> shield next to your result if you earned the Qualification status.
If you are qualified and registered, you are all set and don’t have to do anything. You will be automatically seeded in the Qualifier Corral at any GFNY that you are registered for. Note the registration deadline for Qualifier Corral seeding is usually 21 days before the race date. Please check with your race for the specific Qualifier Corral seeding registration deadline.
If you feel like there is an error with your qualification status, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
(2) Riders who are not qualified but have a UCI Pro license or a national federation license OF THE HIGHEST AMATEUR CATEGORY and are actively racing in that category. Please send a photo of your actual license as well as race results from this or last year to the GFNY you plan to race in for consideration.
GFNY reserves the right to limit the front corral to direct GFNY qualifiers under (1) above if there are space constraints.
If you finish a GFNY Regional Championship or the GFNY World Championship long course in the top 20% of your age group, you will start in the Qualifier Corral at all GFNYs for the next 380 days.
A very special prize goes to the overall man and woman winners of a Regional Championship. Your prize is flights, hotel and free entry to the GFNY World Championship in NYC.
