Great occasion, in Livigno, for two-wheel enthusiasts who in a month's time, at the granfondo, will be able to test the finish that crowned Pogacar

Livigno, 29.05.2024 – After the incredible excitement of the Giro d'Italia, whose queen stage illuminated the sky of Livigno, the two wheels return to the Little Tibet on the occasion of the Granfondo Alé la Merckx, a historic granfondo much appreciated by enthusiasts of the discipline. Available in two versions, long and short, the course crosses kilometers of unspoiled nature, putting athletes in front of major alpine passes, breathtaking hairpin bends, and significant elevation gains: 2050 meters for the shorter circuit, even 4100 for the more challenging one. Two distinct races, 96 and 173 kilometers respectively, both starting from Aquagranda, the Olympic Training Center of the locality, a training ground for many cycling champions and beyond, as Livigno has been one of the favorite destinations of all cycling champions for decades, in the run-up to major international commitments.

Particularly scenic will also be the finish of the race, located at the Mottolino finish line, at an altitude of 2400 meters, the very same finish of stage 15 of the 107th Giro d'Italia, closed last Sunday by the triumph of Slovenian Tadej Pogacar. A unique and unrepeatable opportunity for all the athletes at the start, who will thus be able to tackle one of the hardest and most iconic climbs of the great pink race: an instant classic that has made the eyes of all fans around the world shine. And also the perfect cherry on top of a route that includes some of the most difficult and important passes in the Italian cycling panorama, such as the Umbrail, the Foscagno, and the Forcola. True monuments of two wheels.

Online registrations are open until June 24 to guarantee a bib, without the need to specify which of the two routes, short or long, one wishes to tackle: the choice, in fact, can be definitively made directly on Saturday, June 29, the date of the Alé la Merckx. For latecomers and the undecided, it will still be possible to complete the registration until June 28, the day before the race, in person, directly in Livigno. For all participants, a complete package including a personalized bib, gadgets, Alé cycling jersey, refreshment, assistance, Food Quality Party, and much more is provided. Particularly attractive is also the exclusive Race-Relax promo, which combines the granfondo registration and entry to the Aquagranda wellness center at a special price of €80. To take advantage of it, simply enter the code RACE-RELAX during race registration. The promotion is valid until June 20.
