While entries are booming, the Organizing Committee changes the race route.
Ten days from the official opening of entries for the GimondiBike (on 27th September), 300 athletes who have already sent their registration form for this race. So the starting grids in Iseo are filling, the race still far, but longing to cycle after a cold and snowy winter. It is time to test your form, maybe cycling on that permanent circuit which is very similar to the race route, except for the special Monterotondo trial.
About changes, we announce the elimination of this trial which, appeared for the first time in 2003, celebrated famous bikers such as Julien Absalon, Martino Fruet and Andrea Tiberi. But all fans of this sport do not be worried: they will be able to demonstrate their value in the Cronoscalata della Madonna del Corno, an uphill time trial. 1.350 m long (split among asphalt, cobbled paving, beaten earth and cement), with a drop of 187 m and a max. slope value of 28%, it will drive to the top of the Madonna del Corno (427 m), in Provaglio d’Iseo (Brescia). They will try to beat the record (6’ 43”) set last year by the Russian Alexey Medvedev. Born in 2006, it has always been the ideal place to start the attack towards the final victory.
