The route and the new jersey of the ENEL Green Power Gran Fondo Il Lombardia were presented on Wednesday in via Durini in Milan. It takes place on Sunday 9 October, the day after the professional race, offering the many enthusiasts the opportunity to compare themselves on the historic climbs that have made the Classic of Dead Leaves unique and made many champions of the pedal great.

Also this year departure and arrival are fixed in Cantù. There are two monument climbs: Sormano and Ghisallo, for a unique route and landscape. A mix of climbs, descents, tears that guarantee constant fun for great cross-country skiers.

The novelty is the positioning of the area for the collection of race packages and that of the village. Both will be set up in Como – in the Canottieri Lario / Stadio area – to allow all members to be able to follow live, on Saturday, the arrival of Il Lombardia of the professionals.

The fifth of cycling’s five Monuments is the last illustrious European race of the season. Given the time of year, Il Lombardia has been nicknamed the ‘Race of the Falling Leaves’.

The Gran Fondo allows amateur cyclists to ride the same roads as the pro's including climbs like the Madonna del Ghisallo, 8.5 kms with an average of 6.2% and maximum gradient of 14%.

The Colma di Sormano, 5.1 kms at an average of 6.6%, before the gut wrenching Muro di Sormano. At only 1.9kms long the Muro di Sormano packs a real punch, with an average gradient of 15.8% and maximum gradient 27%!
