The race, short but demanding, takes place on a route closed to traffic for over 90% of the roads. Except for the short crossing of the town of Bosa, the path DOES NOT cross population centers: only nature and beautiful seascapes, but it is also a continuous going up and down without flat stretches!
The race is the first stage of the GiroSardegna, but even cyclists who don’t do the whole week can register there!
The cyclists who compete in the GiroSardegna rankings will recognize each other because they have race numbers with different numbers (name of the cyclist and different colors for categories); the participants of the day only will have the race number on a white background.
START – near the harbor of Alghero will be formed ONLY ONE GRID which will include ALL the cyclists (Mediofondo/MedioGiro and GranFondo/GranGiro): the start will be all together.
In the grids, there are NO precedents and/or preferences (VIP, Women and Privilegiati various!): who enters first on the grid gets in front and the others behind!
Just after the start there is a kilometer or so of speed-controlled transfer until the group come out of the town of Alghero, then, entering the SP105, the race is started in the exact place where the race will then finish.
ALL the coastal road (up to the entrance of the town of Bosa) is closed to traffic. After 35 km of ups and downs of the beautiful Alghero-Bosa is the refreshment point (km 35) but it continues still in the SP105 up to enter the inhabited area of Bosa (km 40) where the short section begins with the traffic to partial closure.
Cross the bridge over the Temo River and immediately afterwards the path division (km 42) is placed. The Mediofondo continue straight ahead and after a kilometer, once again crossing the Temo River, returning again to the section closed to traffic turning towards Alghero on the SP105 (km 45).
Cyclists will find again the refreshment point (km 52) and continue along the coastal road to the final finish (km 86) immediately before the entrance to the town of Alghero.
