Frank Schleck, one of the most famous Luxemburg professionals decided to end his career after the 2016 season. His plan to set up a Granfondo on his training roads was already growing steadily in his head in the past years and will be realized in his first year after his retirement. The Schleck Gran Fondo is a UCI Gran Fondo World Series qualifier on Fränk Schleck's training routes in Luxemburg an espescially in the beautiful Moselle region.
The Schleck Gran Fondo is a qualifier for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships held in Varese, Italie.
Boasting 2,400m of elevation, the 150km race tests the endurance of riders with an awe-inspiring course. The first 25km leads along the Moselle region which occupies much of the eastern part of the country and features slopes flanking the majestic Moselle River before testing for the first time their climbing qualities.
The 150km course is a challenging race track with a repetition of short and steep climbs.
90 km and 1,400m of Elevation
The 90km race provides a shorter challenge for all abilities.
