The UCI Gran Fondo World Series (UGFWS) is a series of UCI-sanctioned races that will be held all over the world. The UGFWS will comprise a maximum of 15 qualifier events, leading to the UWCT Final, the former UCI Masters Road World Championships. The top 25% in each age group of the qualifier events will automatically have the right to compete in the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships and race for the coveted UCI rainbow jersey.
