The course will be a timed section format, with 3 timed uphill sections, the fastest combined time over the 3 section will win across a range of age categories.

The race is neutralized between the timed sections, allowing riders relax, and ride in groups, stop, to re-fuel and re-hydrate and enjoy the stunning scenery.

Andorra features some of the hardest climbs in the Pyrenees, made famous by Grand Tours such as the Vuelta and the Tour de France.

Age categories include; Junior 16-18, Senior 18-39, Masters 40, 45, 50, 55 and 60+ for both men and women

Professional cyclist Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious), resident in Andorra, who finished third in the Vuelta España, has cycled the same roads as the Gran Fondo Encamp Pas de la Casa a thousand times, and puts his finger on a very specific point of the route. “For me, one of the most beautiful places is the climb to Cortals d´Encamp. Once you pass a couple of houses, the road clears of cars and traffic. At the top, the views are magnificent, with a good part of Andorra and especially the entire climb to Beixalis before your eyes”.

The start and finish line is located in Encamp in Andorra.

Afterwards enjoy fresh food (gazpacho, fideuà*, fruit), Live Music, an open bar of soft drinks and drinks and Giveaways!

Professional riders Robert Gesink (Jumbo Visma) and Jack Haig (Team Bahrain Victorious) use the region and the climbs as part of their training for the upcoming WorldTour season and Grand Tours like the Vuelta a Espana and the Tour de France.

Dani Buyo, CEO of the Gran Fondo World Tour explained "Timed sections meant that people could stop and enjoy refreshment out on course without having to worry about their overall time. We carried out a survey afterwards so we could get feedback from participants to see if they liked this more relaxed, but just as competitive format"

“You´ll enjoy road cycling on the Sunday, but we're also adding MTB, gravel and e-bike rides on the Saturday too, in a similar format, with timed sections through different areas of the Parròquia d´Encamp and the Grandvalira Ski Resort” Buyo continued.
