The biggest sportive event of the year. The UCI Granfondo World Championships in Varese sees riders from around the world compete for the rainbox jersey in the Time Trial and Road Race. The pinnacle of sportive racing.
The 22km Time Trial route is a fairly straight forward course with some quick sections. There is a long climb / false flat leading to the half way point before a rapid descent home. There is one tight corner close to home followed by a slight incline so getting this right is crucial.
The 130km road race is over a rolling course with no steep sections or long climbs. The route takes in 3 lakes which split the race nearly into sections. The decisive part may well be a short climb in the last few kilometres between Lake Varese and the finish line.
