Sub 4 Challenge

Since the inception of the Rollfast Gran Fondo it’s been a fast ride. The course is flat and sheltered from most wind by tall Indiana corn. In 2015 a challenge was submitted to finish in under 4 hours. Several local teams worked together and 25 finished under the 4 hour mark.

In 2016, word had spread across the borders of the United States into Canada and even Puerto Rico. “This is one fast event.” New riders traveled and conquered the SUB4 Challenge.

In 2017 we officially embraced the challenge with added neutral moto support, finisher belt buckles and a presentation ceremony for the Sub4 Finishers!

SUB5 GOALS?

We realize not everybody is a world class athlete capable of rolling at a 26mph average. But that doesn’t mean you can’t set a PR. In fact, we heard from MANY that finished their first ever SUB5 hour century. This is no small feat! So, sign up and come ride your fastest century ever!

2015 Finish Time: 3:52:52
2016 Finish Time: 3:51:13
2017 Finish Time: 3:44:59
2018 Finish Time: 3:47:04

Host Hotel

We have partnered with the Renaissance for the past 3 years and found their rates and accommodations to be exceptional. The hotel is an easy and short ride to the start/finish area at the Fondo.
