The 2021 edition of the Utah Gran Fondo which is also known locally as the Cache Gran Fondo had 1520 riders at the start and counted for the second time as a UCI qualifier event for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships. Over 28 US states were represented in the event.

Riders had the option between 4 different courses, but the 76-miles distance was the only race which counted as official qualifier for worlds.

The 76-mile cyclists started in one wave with a 4.5-mile neutral start to safely leave the city. The race course offered some minor elevation with several rolling hills but the majority of the course was flat and fast, resulting in a 23-men sprint at the end to award the overall winner and the winners per age group.

The race was a close battle with John Mansell of the 55-59 age group outsprinting many of his younger opponents to claim overall victory over new-comer Supe Dursteler (M19-34) and Taylor Edwards (M35-39). Strong and experienced riders from the 60-64 and 65-69 age groups also pushed the leaders in the same sprint finish battling for the win. The average speed of the first group was 25.2 mph (40.57 km/h). The course’s oldest rider was the impressive 81-year-old Bernd Pankow from Camas, Washington.

The 55-59 age group showed power and race experience in the female categories as Angela Edwards Patterson and C.J. Boyenger scored the fastest female times in an average speed of 24.1 mph (38.8 km/h) to take the first two spots in the ladies’ race. Shane Ellis (F45-49) took overall third in the same sprint finish.

The time trial who was scheduled had unfortunately been cancelled due to Covid-19.

Congratulations to all riders listed below, who qualified to participate in the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships.
