The Race

Girona

October, 14th 2018

For its twentieth edition, the track is renovated once again. This year the riders will go back to the climb of Xenacs, which had been a classic one in many of the previous editions. Next they will cross over to the Vall d’en Bas and then head to Coll d’Úria after getting to the top of a very hard singletrack to Coll de la Miranda.

From coll d’Úria, a broken climb followed by a rollercoaster in the unique beech forest, take the riders to La Salut. From there, they will head to the Enchanted Rocks through the Pla d’Armadans, with a descent in the dry leaves, carved on the hill, down to Coll de Condreu.

Three kilometres of rutted trails below the crag of El Far take us to the freshly opened 8 km descent with 600 m of vertical drop, with the quality signature of Fidel Freixes, passing through Sant Martí Sacalm in the county of La Selva. After, riders will climb 1.5 km to regain some altitude and then go down a twisty descent to l’Hostal del Fang, with a technically demanding bottom part. There is where the main feed zone will be awaiting, it is a bailout point and also the start of the XCC race.

From there, there is a completely renovated track up to Puig Elena, and then a rocky and technical descent through the crags of Sant Roc.

After crossing the road of Les Serres, the altimetry is not so daunting, but the final section will not give riders a break and the trails on the foothills of Sant Grau will be hard on the legs with so many kilometres on them.
