After the successfully completed round one of the series in Buonconvento – Italy where we acted as guests of the Nova Eroica Bike Festival and race, the Gravel Road Series returns to its regular race format with timed special stages and connecting segments and moves to Alba Piedmont Italy.
The Langhe region where the race course has been drawn is a beautiful and hilly typical Northern Italy landscape covered by hazelnuts plantations and vineyards. Here, worldwide renewed chocolate, wines and meat are produced in a stunningly beautiful natural scenario only interrupted by old villages. Definitely a destination worthwhile a visit to discover its hidden flavors and treasures while riding your bike competing in the First Edition of the World Edition.
A 90 kilometers total distance with three highly technical special stages determining the final classification will not leave unsatisfied pro riders and the most hard core amateurs. The GRS Word Edition is an international competition aimed at becoming the gravel cycling reference event for years to come, prizing the best female and male athletes with an exclusive winner shirt.
In the coming days, we will publish the race course GPS tracks because we want all the fans to be able to discover the unique Alba region as well as getting close to the fascinating gravel cycling.
