Bike

1 lap, 82 km

Single lap. After the first transition area exit, the participants will ride along the Cycle and Pedestrian Path of the “Coastal Park” of Ponente Ligure, heading east, up to Riva Ligure, before transiting onto the Aurelia. A few hundred meters in the town of Santo Stefano al Mare separate the triathletes from the first climb: turn left and climb towards Terzorio, Pompeiana and Castellaro. The slopes are not prohibitive and make this first ascent very easy to pedal: only in the last part, 10% is reached. Afterward, we descend towards Taggia, before starting to gain altitude again. A slight slope follows the course of the Argentina torrent, crossing the town of Taggia before begin a long climb of 17 km that leads to the Ghimbegna pass (1030 m altitude), after having crossed Argallo, Zerni and Vignai. The positive difference in height, which touches 1500 meters, is over: now we descend towards sea level from Bajardo, Ceriana and Poggio di Sanremo, facing the famous descent of the Classicissima Milano-Sanremo in the final.
