Route Medio Fondo (75 km)
The 75 km Mediofondo with 1650 meters of altitude difference starts and finishes in Pinzolo. After just 7 km he tackles one of the climbs also covered during the 2015 Giro d’Italia, the Daone Pass. Having tackled the Daone Pass we head to Stenico, a historic town overlooking Ponte Arche and the beautiful Val Rendena which will allow you to catch your breath before tackling a slight climb up to the town of Fiavè. At this point there will be a crossroads of the 2 routes: the Mediofondo will immediately take the Durone Pass, the last effort of the day which will guide us to the arrival in Pinzolo.
Route Gran Fondo (117 km)
The 117 km Granfondo with 2600 meters of altitude difference starts and finishes in Pinzolo. After just 7 km he tackles one of the climbs also covered during the 2015 Giro d’Italia, the Daone Pass. Having tackled the Daone Pass we head to Stenico, a historic town overlooking Ponte Arche and the beautiful Val Rendena which will allow you to catch your breath before tackling a slight climb up to the town of Fiavè which will act as a springboard towards Lake Tenno and the descent that will take us to Riva del Garda and Arco, going up again to the Ballino pass and the Durone pass, the last effort of the day that will guide us to the arrival in Pinzolo.
Maximum time for routes is 3.30pm.
Beyond these deadlines, participation will not be considered valid; participants will be able to consult the timetables indicating the travel time for both routes on the website.

MYSDAM PERSONAL CHIPS:
In 2023 it is possible to use the same chip, called OneChip, on events timed by MySDAM, Krono Service, WinningTime and TDS timers.
In the same events, all the personal yellow WinningTime chips, the special edition Nove Colli and all the Krono Service chips already in the possession of the cyclists can also be used, subject to qualification for 2023. The MySDAM chips can no longer be used. All those in possession of the green or yellow MySDAM chip can have a OneChip for the price of the 2023 OneChip Cycling and MTB qualification only by handing in their MySDAM chip to the Chip Point.
The chip can be purchased online on the ENDU website or directly at the Chip Point in the race package delivery area at the price of Euro 30.00. In the case of online purchases, you can request home shipping or receive a voucher to be able to collect it at the race.
The 2023 OneChip Cycling and MTB qualification can be obtained on the ENDU website (up to 48 hours before the start of the event) or during the race at the Chip Point at the price of €25.00 (on promotion only online on ENDU for € 10pm until March 15th).
The authorization is linked to a specific chip, therefore it cannot be transferred to another chip in the event of loss or damage.
As an alternative to using your own chip, it is possible to rent a Daily Chip for the event, upon payment of €10.00, of which €5.00 is a guarantee deposit which is returned when the chip is returned. Redelivery is possible from thirty minutes after the arrival of the first competitor up to thirty minutes beyond the maximum time of the event. If the chip is not returned, it becomes the property of the athlete and can be used on other events subject to authorization. The chip can only be returned during the same event in which it was rented.
The chip must be positioned on the seat under the saddle using the appropriate plastic support.
Failure or incorrect use of the chip will result in non-inclusion in the ranking and non-attribution of the time spent. Failure to return the chip at the end of the race will result in a penalty of Euro 45.00.
They will be set up at the start, at the finish and along the two routes. The management of the controls will be entrusted to authorized personnel. Those who anticipate the start or start without carrying out the start control will be excluded from the final ranking and sanctioned according to ACSI regulations.
Refreshment, water and mechanical points
Along the route, refreshment, water and mechanical points will be set up and organized only for cyclists who wear the race number.

The organizing committee is not responsible for possible thefts of bicycles left unattended.
There will be “broom” vehicles used for the recovery of withdrawn athletes located along the entire route which will follow the race and transport the athletes to the arrival area.
ASSISTANCE ON THE ROAD
An adequate number of assistance vehicles are present during the event
mechanical and medical with fixed and mobile stations, assistance from private vehicles following the race is therefore not permitted, under penalty of disqualification of the athlete.

The Traffic Police, the Technical Escort and the Moto Relays authorized by the organization will precede and escort the participants during the race on both race routes. Two-way radios are not permitted.
The organizing committee will prepare an adequate medical assistance service on the route and at the starting and arrival points with fixed stations, medicalized ambulances, rescue volunteers, guaranteed by 118 and an air ambulance in case of need. The emergency number for all participants to call only and exclusively in the event of a serious emergency during the race is 118.
Vehicular traffic during the event is partially closed and therefore absolute observance of the Highway Code applies. Participants overtaken by the vehicle indicating “End of cycling race” will have to continue with total and scrupulous compliance with the highway code, as blocking traffic will no longer be permitted by the Authorities. Cyclists who enter the route without regular race registration will be held legally responsible in the event of accidents involving them, whether they are the cause or not.
All those who throw waste along the route will be reported to the Jury and excluded from the final ranking. Participants are invited to maintain a decent attitude during the race and during the starting operations.
