THE RACE COURSE: The route is entirely flat (… nothing “Sarda Plain” or almost!) with fast road and not very busy but NOT closed to traffic. In the absence of wind the timing bikes will certainly give an advantage.

The cyclists go independently of the starting point at La Caletta di Siniscola.

You start from the beach of La Caletta going quickly to Siniscola; reaching his the first houses (km 6) you enter the SS 125 and find the “asphalt carpet” stretched for the professionals of the Giro d’Italia 2017. Continue in SS125 until you meet Posada (km 12.5) Up to the finish line in Budoni’s central avenue (km 25)..
