Multiple U.S. Pro Road Champion and Giro d’Italia stage winner ‘Fast Freddie’ Rodriguez is excited to share his East Bay California roads with friends during the August 17 Fast Freddie Gran Fondo. There will be four routes to choose from: Gran, Medio, Corto and Piccolo/kids.
Registration opens February 1, and anyone interested in pre-riding the 100-mile Gran Loop with Freddie Rodriguez on February 2 can register here. The pre-ride, like the main event in August, begins and ends at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, California, where Rodriguez has called home nearly 20 years.
Rodriguez, 39, began his professional career with Team Saturn in 1996, and has raced alongside Tour de France yellow jersey wearer Steve Bauer, three-time World road champion Oscar Friere, two-time World road champion and Olympic gold medalist Paolo Bettini. Recently, he raced for Team Exergy, placing third, fifth, sixth, and 11th in the first four stages of the 2012 Tour of California against the world’s top sprinters.
