Mandalika

Mandalika is a popular tourist destination located on the south coast of Lombok. Known for its long white sandy beaches, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean and rich culture and history, the area attracts visitors looking to enjoy a variety of activities such as surfing, snorkeling, diving, and shopping for souvenirs and local handicrafts. Kuta is also a popular spot for culinary delights, with many restaurants serving traditional Indonesian and international dishes. Additionally, the area offers the opportunity for paragliding, as it boasts breathtaking views and good thermal conditions.

The government of Indonesia has made significant efforts in recent years to develop Mandalika as a major tourist center. One of the key developments is the construction of a race circuit complex in Mandalika, which will serve as a MotoGP race track, where we start and finish.

The area also offers the opportunity to visit traditional villages inhabited by the Sasak people, such as Sade and Ende. These villages provide a glimpse into local culture and architecture and the opportunity to observe the daily activities of the inhabitants. These traditional places offer a chance to learn about and understand the traditional way of life of the locals of Lombok.

Course

The start for the Long and Medium Distance will be in the Pertamina Mandalika Street Circuit. Enjoy the flair of an international race track. It will be an exceptional start, experience a lap on this race course before we follow the well built Mandalika road with moderate slopes together until km 32, where the two courses split.

Long Distance

The course is flat for the next 30 kilometers and can be ridden very fast while we reach the coast with wonderful views over the ocean. Until km 70 we ride along the coast at sea level. The crossing of the Sekoton peninsula from the north coast to the south coast follows with moderate climbs At km 80 the climb will be crowned with a breathtaking view over the Ocean. After the descent we will continue along the coast with rolling ups and dows until km 90 where we will face a challenging climb up to 240 m followed by rolling hills. The reward will be paid at km 98. It will be again a not to be forgotten view over the blue sea. In Selong Belanak, km 105, both routes join again.

Medium Distance
After the separation from the long distance, it continues 18 km with moderate ups and downs before reaching a steep descent with a breathtaking view over the sea, down to the coast. After 45 kilometers in Selong Belanak then the union of both routes takes place. 

Long & Medium Course continued
A first slowly rising, later steeper Climb is rewarded again with magnificent views over the sea at 150 m altitude. At km 164 of the Long Course, km 61 of the Medium Course, the last climb is reached at 168 m altitude. From here it goes downhill until we reach the Mandalika Race Circuit again at km 171 / 68. Give it all again with the feeling of a real race course to reach the finish at km 175 / 72 on the race circuit.

Drinks and the after race buffet will be served directly at the race track. The award ceremony will also take place in this setting.

LONG COURSE IS A COMPETITION: Only the finishers of the long course are eligible for category rankings and Overall and Podium awards. If you want to race and be ranked in your category, you must complete the long course. Top 10% of finishers in each age group earn a spot in the Qualifier Corral at every GFNY World event.

 

MEDIUM COURSE IS NOT A COMPETITION: The riders of the medium course will be provided their start-to-finish time, but will not be ranked by finish time. All finish times will be listed in alphabetical order.

Perks included as part of GFNY Mandalika

THE JERSEY: All riders receive the official GFNY Mandalika race jersey, which is mandatory attire at the race. The jersey is designed in NYC and Made in Italy.

CHIP TIMING: GFNY Mandalika is a timed race. Each athlete has their own timing chip, which starts right after you cross the start line and stops when you cross the finish line. Timing results will be available at gfny.cc/results.

FINISHER MEDAL: Every GFNY Mandalika finisher receives a medal, no matter which distance they complete. All finishers also earn a “Finish” towards their 3x2023 GFNY medal or the 10x medal. Go to gfny.com/medals for more information on GFNY’s multi-finisher medals.
