July 09 2017
Cuneo, ITALY

Great news for La Fausto Coppi: the international cycling marathon to be held in Cuneo on July 10, 2016 will inaugurate the new tarmac path between the Shrine of Valmala and Lemma, a scenic route through the woods that will be ready on the eve of the race and that will become an important route for all fans of cycling and hiking in the mountains. It will be an opportunity to test this track as part of the heritage of our roads dedicated to the cyclists, either for a workout or a quiet hike. It is also the confirmation that the Cuneo area is a land of bicycle enthusiasts and environmentally friendly tourism, with a great respect for nature and the Alpine region.

Thanks to the addition of this new tarmac track, the race route will be 177 km long, with a global elevation of 4125 m.

Starting at 7 am from Cuneo, Galimberti Square, the race will pass the villages of Busca , Costigliole Saluzzo, Piasco, Brossasco till the junction for Valmala, the climb to the shrine and the arrival to Pian Pedro (1354 m). The new road starts from here: there will be a very technical downhill stretch (about 10 km) up to Lemma and hence the connection with the Colletta di Rossana.

Cyclists will then reach Dronero, Montemale, Piatta Soprana (1136 m ) and the climb to the Fauniera ( 2480 m).They will descend into the valley of Arma until Demonte and finally, via Festiona, Madonna del Colletto ( 1310m ) , Valdieri, Borgo San Dalmazzo, they will get to the arrival line.
