LAGHÈE GRAVEL EPIC - TRACKS
The GPX tracks made with Komoot (for those who do not yet have the app you can download it here: IOS or ANDROID) will be sent via email only after registration. Below you will find the previews with useful information.
Please Note: the times indicated are purely indicative and with an average training level.
BORDER ROUTE 45 KM: The short route, of about 45 km and about 1500 meters dsl +, is suitable for all levels, from beginners to experts. After the start, you enter Switzerland and skirt the border, also passing through the "Cadorna line". Path rich in history and which ends between 4 and 5 hours of pedaling at the most.
VAL D'INTELVI HAUTE ROUTE 85 KM: This 82 km track with about 2700 m dsl + includes the "border route" and adds a spectacular pure gravel loop through the high valleys of the Val d'Intelvi and then offers fantastic views over Lake Como. Route that ends between 7:30 and 9 hours.
LAGHÉE HEROES 125 KM: As in all beautiful things, to obtain them we have to suffer. This is an "extreme" route, not so much for the mileage but for the difference in height and the technical level in some points where you should pay more attention. There will also be a stretch to be made by ferry from Bellagio where you will also find a checkpoint for "punching" with mini refreshments offered by Chimpanzee. The first part is the most demanding and technical but which will offer unique views over different valleys, you will see the Swiss Alps, the Monte Rosa chain and the Como and Lecco mountains, including our majestic Grigna. The second part that can be completely pedaled will then reconnect with the second part of the "Val d'Intelvi Haute Route".
This track is the only one that for organizational reasons has a time limit of 14 hours from its departure which must take place between 7:30am and 8:30am to close the last arrivals by 10:30pm.
The base camp will close at 11pm (if there are still late riders on the route with respect to the maximum time allowed, please notify the organization in time).
