The registrations for the 2018 Granfondo Yunnan are opening on Tuesday, 17 July. One day later as planned due to some technical difficulties. Registration is recommended to be done online and the early bird phase is a quick one!

The new international website will be launched this week as well, so please stay tuned for details on this year's event with all its new features. On Facebook, we are also posting up-to-date announcements so you might wish to join that page.

For the registration, you can choose between single stages or the full package granfondo tour of 6 stages including the Mangshi time trial labelled as "It's Dehong time!" . Please note that this TT is an integral part of this year's competition. It takes place on Saturday afternoon, and if you do not turn up for it, you will get a 2-hour penalty in the general classification.

New this year is the distinction between the gold, silver and bronze certificate at the end of the Granfondo tour. If you finish all six stages, you get gold. Do five and you get silver. Four will give you bronze. Note this is for long distance participants only. All gold certificate winners will be honoured at the Lijiang after party.

The 2018 event of course also has a choice between a long distance and a short distance option.
