Following the preventive measures taken against the spread of COVID-19 (better known as coronavirus), the Granfondo Torino, originally scheduled for July 12th, 2020 had to be canceled and postponed to May 2nd, 2021.
You’ll have to arm yourself with patience until May 2, 2021 to celebrate the 6th edition of the Granfondo Torino, which will take place in Turin, the capital of the famous Piedmont region. The Granfondo Torino, like all events organized by GS Alpi, offers polished and diverse routes, between vineyards and mountains, which attract more than 3,000 cyclists from all over Europe each year. For this 6th edition, competitors will have two courses to choose from:
- Medio, a 90-kilometer route featuring a little less than 2,000 meters of elevation east of Turin
- Lungo, a demanding route of 120 kilometers and 2,400 meters of elevation, similar to the Medio course with a longer loop to the south-east of Turin
With its routes through Piedmont, the Granfondo Torino offers a formula that’s just as suitable to the competitive cyclist in search of a new challenge as to the Sunday cyclist wishing to spend a pleasant sporty weekend in a beautiful setting. See you on May 2, 2021!
The two courses of the Granfondo Torino start from the Parco del Valentino, on the banks of the Po, in Turin.
The Medio route will first follow the Po north, before heading to Pino Torinese and then up through the Parco Naturale della Collina di Superga to reach Castiglione Torinese. The track will then begin a loop passing through Casalborgone, Albugnano, Castelnuovo Don Bosco, Moncucco Torinese, Arignano, Andezeno and Baldissero Torinese before reaching the finish line in front of the Basilica di Superga.
The Lungo route will follow an almost identical route to the Medio route but with an additional detour between Albugnano and Castelnuovo Don Bosco. These additional thirty kilometers will take cyclists to Cortanze and Montafia before rejoining the common route at Castelnuovo Don Bosco.
Refueling will be offered along the routes.
