2017 Schleck Gran Fondo

Schleck Gran Fondo

May 20 2017
Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxembourg
 
 
 

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 Albi, France.

175 km and 2,757m of Elevation

Boasting 2,757m of elevation, the 175km 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 175km course is a very challenging race track with a repetition of short and steep climbs.

The race course will also cross the Mullerthal Region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland – which owes its name to its hilly landscape reminiscent of real Switzerland. This region is above all a unique biotope characterized by fascinating rock formations which owe their aspect to millenniums of erosion. Parts of the region are about to become a nature park. The Schleck Gran Fondo provides spectacular views at the rock formations.


The highest point is reached after 97km in Angelsberg, before returning to the start/ finish in Mondorf-les-Bains.

90 km and 1,429m of Elevation

The 90km race follows the first 40km of the 175km course, providing a shorter challenge for all abilities. 8 km later the riders of the small track will join again the race course of the 175km track. Their highest point will be reached after 62 km.

Gran Fondo Village

Enjoy a plethora of family activities, food and drink, Dj, and of course, a place to sit and rest.
This village is open to the public, so tell your friends to come and enjoy one of the best days of the year with you, whether you’re riding or not!

Pasta Party

The Schleck Gran Fondo will host their pre-event Pasta Party at Casino 2000 on Friday 19 May between 6 pm and 11 pm.  A safety briefing will be conducted at 7 pm during the Pasta Party.

After Race Party

The After Race Party will be the well deserved reward after all the climbs you’ll face in Gran Fondo. A nice concert will add a unique atmosphere to a great sporty weekend. The After Race Party opens its doors at 6pm in the Casino 2000.
