Gravel Ensenada in Baja California is a challenging and new Gravel event at the doorstep of the States with a hilly course through the vineyards of Mexico’s wine region and organized by the team behind the Mexican UCI Gran Fondo World Series events.

UCI Gravel Ensenada is a demanding race that runs through some of the most beautiful sites of the Baja California peninsula. It begins and ends on the Villa de Juarez, a small village 20km north of Ensenada, Baja California. The event has a granfondo course of 144km (90 miles) and a 85km mediofondo (53 miles) course with a demanding route for cyclists who want to qualify for the UCI Gravel World Championship.

Start and finish are only 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the US border and the routes winds north towards that border to make a turn at only 15 miles from the States to get back south to finish in the same location.
