it's rider safety
not an award

Primo start

The Sub4 Challenge has created quite a fast event! In order to maintain a high level of safety, we have introduced a qualification system for placing the fastest cyclist in a corral at the front of the ride.

The Primo corral will enable the faster riders to clear out and move up the road with less congestion.  

How to qualify

  • Finish a qualifying Rollfast event
    • Rollfast Fondo under 5hrs
    • Rollfast 8x8 Challenge (8 laps)
  • Hold a current USA Cycling or UCI professional, Cat 1 or 2 ROAD racing license
  • Log 500hr or 10,000mi on Strava in 2017

Primo Passes

Passes are required for entry into the corral, NO EXCEPTIONS

Passes must be picked up in person with identification

Pick up your pass at the required rider meeting on Saturday at the Pre-Party event (details to follow)

Corral will close 15 minutes before start of Fondo

sub4 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 an 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!
