velofix to Sponsor 8th Annual Gran Fondo Hincapie

This year marks the eighth anniversary of Gran Fondo Hincapie-Greenville, a ride that has since expanded to a series in four different cities across the country and growing. Since the inaugural race in 2012 in Greenville, SC, the series has grown tremendously in participation and reputation, making a name for itself as the ultimate cycling experience across the United States and the world.  

Founders and brothers Rich and George Hincapie highlight the best of cycling in their fondo, garnering enthusiasts from all walks of life to celebrate the sport and greater culture of cycling. 

“The Gran Fondo Hincapie series has quickly become known as a top-notch cycling event in the nation,” says George Hincapie. “The Greenville ride—our flagship event—brings the most riders in attendance, so we pay extra attention to safety and support. As such, Velofix’s partnership is a very welcome one; their Mobile Bike Shops will certainly enhance the experience and safety of the Greenville ride.”  -George Hincapie

Chris Guillemet, co-founder and CEO of Velofix, will be participating in the Fondo with velofix’s Charlotte, NC partner Todd Hudson’s team assisting riders with bike builds and tune ups on the Friday , on course support and post ride support Saturday. In Chris’s words, “Gran Fondo Hincapie-Greenville is not only an amazing experience for cyclists from all over, but also it’s a great ride for the local community. Having recently launched with an outstanding team in Charlotte Metro, we love letting the local cycling community get to know who we are and what we do by providing mechanical support to events like this. We look forward to continuing to build a relationship with the team at Hincapie and the community they impact.”

Gran Fondo Hincapie will be held in Greenville, SC, on October 19th.
