The 12th Edition of the Alberto Contador Gran Fondo is scheduled to take place next Saturday, September 23, 2023. Its tour will be guided by the two-time Tour de France winner, Alberto Contador. This fascinating circular route begins in Oliva, province of Valencia, and continues through different municipalities in the province of Alicante to end at the same starting point. During this event, roads are closed to regular traffic in order to ensure the well-being and comfort of all participants. In this way, you will not only be able to pedal without obstacles but you will also be able to enjoy the landscape with greater tranquility. In addition, you will find two options according to your level or your disposition: the Gran Fondo itinerary and the Medio Fondo itinerary. The Gran Fondo involves completing the entire course of the race, that is, 162 kilometers in total and more than 3,000 meters of accumulated unevenness. On the other hand, the Medio Fondo option consists of traveling 111 kilometers and more than 1,900 meters of unevenness, leaving and returning from the same point as the Gran Fondo but reducing the number of municipalities during the journey. What is clear is that, whichever option you choose, the delivery, the emotion and the atmosphere of participation will be the same. So don't let anything stop you and ... let the race begin!
