UCI Gravel World Series

On May 12, join the 3RIDES UCI Gravel Race for its second historic run. This event is a part of the UCI Gravel World Series, where riders compete in age categories.

Completely renewed route

The organizers have carefully considered feedback from participants in the 2023 edition. The lap has been extended to an impressive 63 kilometers in length. Participants over 50 (women) and over 60 (men) will complete this lap once, while younger riders must conquer it twice. Each lap features approximately 700 of elevation gain.

The routes take you through pristine natural areas that are typically off-limits to cyclists. As a result, they'll provide the GPX files shortly before the event to maintain their integrity.
