After last year’s success, the event on gravel roads in the heart of the Prosecco hills is renewed on October 1. 70-km route designed by AMG Alta Marca Gravel Asd.
It successfully debuted in 2022. Now it is ready to return and offer new emotions in the heart of the Prosecco hills World Heritage Site. On Wednesday, April 5, registration opens for the Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest, an event that next October 1 will enrich the billboard of the traditional road event that this year celebrates its 20th anniversary edition.
The Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest will take place for about 70 km among white roads and rapid ups and downs among the vineyards. The route will be defined by the experience of AMG Alta Marca Gravel ASD and, as the team of planners likes to emphasize, will be in perfect #amgstyle.
Guaranteed to be an attractive route from a landscape point of view, to be tackled in total freedom and without any competitive goal: the Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest in fact does not include timing or mechanical assistance.
“This is the only gravel event in the context of a road event,” emphasizes Massimo Stefani, executive manager of Prosecco Cycling. “We have chosen a route as parallel as possible to the traditional route in order to guarantee, above all, the medical assistance that we believe to be indispensable and necessary, even if it is a non-competitive event. We want to bring all the emotions of Prosecco Cycling to those who will choose the off-road experience as well. Starting with the gourmet stops, which are common for both routes.”
The entry fee for the Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest is 25 euros and does not include the free packet – which can however be purchased at the time of registration – nor the voucher for the Gourmet Grand Tour. However, it will be possible to take advantage of the stops, real gourmet refreshment points placed along the route and at the arrival, with strictly Italian and local products from sustainable agriculture at km 0 and, once arrived in Valdobbiadene, to taste Tiramisù, the most famous spoon dessert in the world in the beautiful scenery of Villa dei Cedri. For teams and/or groups with a minimum of 10 participants, the registration fee is reduced to 20 euros.
With registration for the Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest, but only until July, it will be possible to purchase the 20-year anniversary jersey, blue in color, produced by Giessegi exclusively for Gravel.
With the Prosecco Cycling Gravel Contest begins the most anticipated time of year for enthusiasts to use this increasingly popular bicycle among pedal enthusiasts. It will be a unique and inimitable moment, just like Prosecco Cycling in its 20th anniversary year.
