The race place chosen for this new edition is the one of Cittadella (Padua), which will be the start and finish, and the gravel roads around the river Brenta, which will be decisive in selecting the successor of Alexey Lutsenko and Robin Froidevaux, winners in the first two years. It will be a circuit of 37 km to be repeated 4 times to characterize this season’s race.
The start will be from the beating heart of Cittadella, Piazza Luigi Pierobon, and will touch the municipalities of Fontaniva (PD), Tezze sul Brenta (VI) and Cartigliano (VI), before returning around the walls of Cittadella. Altitude difficulties are not expected, but of the 37 km of ring, 24 kms are on a gravel road, which means that runners will have to avoid rocks and breathe dust for 96 km overall. Particularly noteworthy is the off-road stretch along the Brenta River, which stretches for almost 15 km and will also pass through the “Park of Amicizia” and the Park of Basse del Brenta, before returning to Cittadella.
