The road began in Harlem, NYC for “The Cheetah”, Nelson Vails. Harlem may seem an unlikely beginning for a cycling legend, but it was there that Nelson started on the path to become the first African-American to win an Olympic medal in cycling. His silver medal from the 1984 Los Angeles Games is the crowning jewel to a prolific and successful career on both the track and road.
We're proud to collaborate with Nelson Vails on this "NVxGFNY" collection. Nelson is a long time supporter and finisher of GFNY. Get your NVxGFNY kit signed at this year's race.
NVxGFNY is exclusively designed by Alex Ostroy in NYC and 100% Made in Italy.
This jersey has the same fit, features and material as the official GFNY race jersey.
