THE ROUTE AND ALTITUDE OF THE GRANFONDO
177 km for more than 4000 meters in altitude: there are not many Granfondos in Italy that are so hard and difficult. The route of the Granfondo splits from that of the Mediofondo already at the gates of Cuneo. After having crossed the Soleri viaduct, turn towards Busca. After 30 km on the flat, the first climb of the day takes place, the one that leads to the sanctuary of Valmala (1,380 m) in Valle Varaita. Just enough time to catch your breath and, having passed Dronero, with the passage on the Devil’s bridge, it’s already time to tackle the second climb of the day. A 10 km climb towards Piatta Soprana and Valle Grana with peaks at 14% for about 10 km. After descending into Valle Grana, the Granfondo route rejoins that of the Mediofondo: the great difficulties of the queen climb of the competition await: Colle Fauniera. The route continues as described in the Mediofondo, to return to Cuneo, towards the finish line.
