Cycling | 90 Km.

Circular route of 90 km starting and finishing at the Adarraga Sport Centre (Logroño).

T1 is in Paseo de las Norias and we will cross the city by Vara del Rey and Avenida de Madrid to leave towards Lardero. We will pass through the villages of Sorzano, Daroca, Sotés, Alesón, Huércanos and Cenicero before entering the Rioja Alavesa through Elciego to reach Laguardia, to go towards Lapuebla de Labarca and bordering the Ebro we will return to Logroño.

Characteristics

  • DRAFTING is not allowed.
  • Always cycle on the right-hand side of the road.
  • The Circuit will be marked every 5km by signs.
  • The Circuit will be partially closed to traffic.
  • There will be three drink stations along the route: the first one in Sojuela (km 23.5), the second one in Cenicero (km 52.8) and the last one in Laguardia (km 86).

The course is very fast with a maximum gradient of 8%, a cumulative positive elevation gain of 1000m in 90km of the circuit (2% positive elevation gain on average).

The first 15 km are practically flat (1% positive average) and with long straights. The first obstacle to warm up the legs is the ascent to Joto with 3km at 4.7%. After an area of slides and recovery, 5km further on (km 25), is the second uphill section: 3km at 4.1%. Once again there are toboggans and slight descents where you can fly through vineyards until the last positive stretch at km 56: 8km with an average positive gradient of 2.5% where the hardest part will be the last kilometer at 5%. From that point to the finish line, the last 22km, has a negative gradient (-0.91%) so you can recover some strength to get to run.
