Press Release


With the recent closure of Inyo National Forest and strained firefighting resources during these difficult times, we are sad to announce the cancellation of the 2021 Mammoth Gran Fondo. While there are no fires threatening Mammoth Lakes or the surrounding areas at this time, wildfires continue to spread across the west and firefighting resources are extremely limited. Our thoughts are with the firefighters and communities across the west affected by these fires.

Refund Options
There are three options for your 2021 Mammoth Gran Fondo registration – receive a full refund through imATHLETE with no penalty, defer your registration to the 2022 Mammoth Gran Fondo scheduled on September 10, 2022 or donate your registration fee to support youth programming in Mammoth Lakes. Instructions for each option are available on Any riders that have not opted for one of the 3 options by November 1, 2021 will be automatically deferred to the 2022 Mammoth Gran Fondo event. If you have any other questions, please send an email to [email protected].

Eroica California postponed until 2022


Dear Friends of Eroica,
Due circumstances surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and above all, not wanting to add more tension to an already very complex situation, together with local partners we have decided to postpone this years’ edition of Eroica California. The new dates for the event are now set from April 29th to May 1st, 2022, where we are already focusing our energies to once again welcome you to the roads of the Central Coast.

We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and complications that this decision implies for all those who were already registered, but thereasons for this decision are, we believe, clear and robust: to protect the participants and guests of Eroica California, as well as the citizens of Cambria, Cayucos and San Simeon, against the risk of a resurgence in the pandemic at some time in fall 2021, and to guarantee the international participation that has characterized this event since the very beginning. Obviously, such diverse attendance, the hallmark of Eroica California, will remain unfeasible in the coming months.

And in case one more reason was needed, we need to maintain the inner nature of Eroica California. Beyond the ride through the stunning landscapes of the Central Coast, this event is meant to live special moments full of friendship and good wine. Strict compliance with health protocols, which in principle will remain in place, would profoundly distort this experience.

What it means for your race entry:
You are already automatically registered for the 2022 edition. Both financially, and per our regulations, we simply are not in a position to offer entry refunds. Doing so would close Eroica California doors for good as much of the overhead that keeps us staying afloat is dependent on race entry revenue.

Transfer of Registration:
If you wish to transfer your existing Eroica California entry to another person, we will be happy to transfer it from December 2021 by simply sending a mail to [email protected] with your request.

Again, thank you for your understanding.

Heroic Regards,

The Eroica California Team
