SuperGiroDolomiti: one of Europe's hardest gran fondos

SuperGiroDolomiti is a brutal a gran fondo. Are you up for it? 228 kilometers with 5450 meters of elevation? On the way you'll pass through two countries and have to conquer the most feared climb in professional cycling: Monte Zoncolan. It's also the only gran fondo in the world with the Zoncolan in the course!

Too intense? On the same day there is also a separate medio fondo: Dolomitenradrundfahrt. This is a separate event with its own start.

Beautiful route with Zoncolan and 2 times the Plöckenpass

Prepare for a beautiful but very tough course. You start fairly easy with the Gailbergsattel. Then follows the steep north side of the Plöckenpass. You ride into Italy for the infamous Zoncolan, obviously from the classic west side. Then you get to cross the Plöckenpass one more time, this time from the southeast side. A fantastic climb with lots of hairpins. Don't think you're already home! Before the finish, the Kartitscher Sattel awaits. Not a difficult climb but extremely long at 40 km.
