Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo presented by Toyota

View Weather Update


I am thrilled to announce that the third annual Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo presented by Toyota will take place on September 22, 2018 at Rough Riders Stadium in Frisco, Texas. The Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo is a premier, multi-course cycling event designed for the professional to the weekend rider. Once again we will feature a 100-mile Gran Fondo with a winner take all purse of $10,000, along with the Medio Fondo (100K), Piccolo Fondo (45-mile), Ride 22 (22-mile) and a family fondo.

Following the rides, we’ll have an after party, awards ceremony, entertainment and family activities, and it’s all for a good cause. The Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo benefits Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities and helps us raise funds to provide programming for our TEAM 22 mentoring and leadership development program and the annual Back to School Program.

Join our mailing list to receive exclusive discounts, information and more.

I look forward to seeing you on the course.

Riders and Volunteers, Partners and supporters,

As of 2:00 PM today, we have been updated by the City of Frisco Emergency Management teams – who have been in direct communication with the National Weather Service — that there is a continued threat of hazardous weather in the area today through tomorrow.

Our primary concern remains the safety of all participants, riders, staff, volunteers and partners. We cannot guarantee the safety of anyone participating in the event, including volunteers and contractors involved in set up as well as volunteers, participants and riders tomorrow morning. Based on that information we are cancelling the 2018 Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo.

We appreciate your support and commitment to the Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo and Pat & Emmitt Smith Charities and are disappointed that we will not be together tomorrow to ride and celebrate:

You can still pick up packets until 7:00 PM this evening at the venue — at Rough Riders stadium parking lot — and get your t shirts.

Thank you for understanding the difficulty and challenges surrounding this decision. Please be reminded there will be no refunds of registration fees.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact racedirector@ejsmithenterprises.com.

Thank you,
Emmitt Smith Gran Fondo Team
