Pianello del Lario, Italy

April 7h, 2019

Route

The start will be in Pianello del Lario in the square of the lakefront behind the church. After a first flat stretch on the lakeside promenade, the athletes will face the first ascent to the church of Sant'Eufemia located in the historic Giardin del Merlo, former botanical garden adorned with bridges, caves and tunnels and located on steep rocks overlooking the lake. Easy and fun climb up single track, with evocative passages and views. Reached the church, placed in a highly position panoramic, we descend towards the side of Dongo. Just enough time to catch your breath to face the second ascent that leads under the steep slopes and canals of the Sasso di Musso, wild area inhabited by deer and roe.

A short rocky path leads us to the beautiful clearing of "la Corna": from here begins the hardest stretch spectacular of the race, but the effort will be rewarded by a unique panorama. You climb steeply between calcareous outcrops and after a short traverse (pay attention) you reach the characteristic church of San Bernardo placed at 1105m high. Now after taking the Via dei Monti Lariani, path that runs along the western shore of Lake Como from Sorico to Cernobbio, we descend towards the mountains of Labbio (1050mslm) and continue on a slight slope up to the mountains of Naro (1196mslm). Now not remains that descend and after passing the mountains of San Bernardino (977mslm) finally you reach the country of Cremia. One last stretch of lakefront leads to arrival.
