FULL ITINERARY

DAY ONE WED 27 JUN | ARRIVAL & WELCOME

Group transfer from Marco Polo International Airport, Venice early afternoon to La Villa. The transfer will take about 2.5 hours. Hotel check-in, followed by bike assembly and setup. Welcome dinner and Tour Introduction.

DAY TWO THU 28 JUN | LA VILLA LOOP SELLARONDA

A great ride around the Sellaronda. No rush! This is good reconnaissance of the race course and a chance to loosen the muscles after travelling. Warm-up on the Passo Campolongo and enjoy the spectacular scenery as we circle the Sella massif over the Passo Pordoi, Sella and Gardena.
DISTANCE | 60KM | 37MI
ELEVATION | 1650M | 5400FT

DAY THREE FRI 29 JUN | LA VILLA LOOP

Today our route traces the second half of the medio course, heading up the now familiar Passo Campolongo. We then turn left and wind along the stunning valley road before climbing to Passo Falzarego/Valparola. It's then back to La Villa where those who dare can check out the Mür dl Giat, the wall of the cat. If time permits, we will do our race registration today.

If you would like to ride the Passo Giau because you won't be doing it race day, or you would prefer to reconnoitre this climb, there is the option of riding the longer route.

DAY FOUR SAT 30 JUN | REST DAY

Rest day, race registration and preparation. Today we rest up and make sure the bikes are ready for the epic day tomorrow. Those who would like to keep the legs moving can do an easy spin, emphasis on spinning, no effort! You'll need that energy tomorrow!

DAY FIVE SUN 1 JUL | RACE DAY!

Early start to be in your race start positions by 6:15AM. Today is one of those very special days on the bike, as you ride the Queen of Alpine Granfondos. You will be amazed at the spectacle, and warm support of the volunteers who look after you all along the route. Choose the short, medio or long course on the day. Forza!
