Distances: 68, 110 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills

Houffa Gravel has been organized for the first time in 2021 in Houffalize, the city which is wellknown for many years of UCI Mountainbike World Cups.  The gravel race is held on the less technical side of the city on more accessible rolling hills and beautiful landscapes.

The course winds around the famous mountainbike city of Houffalize, starting from the main square in the city center.  The steepest climb of the days follows directly after the start with the famous Rue du Saint Roch, one of the steep road climbs during Liège Bastogne Liège.  The first gravel section follows after 1.6km.  80% of the route is offroad.

The eastern first part of the course is challenging on rolling hills but wide open gravel roads with from time to time a longer uphill section.  The sector in between km 27 and 33 is hard with additional difficult parts around km 50 and km 73.

The shorter 68km distance follows exactly the same routes to make a shortcut after 66km to turn left where the 110km long distances starts a second southern loop with less vertical elevation.
