MEDIOFONDO KM 90 Altitude Gain 1600 mt

The departure will be given in Viale Roma next to Campo Marzo, a public park adjacent to the historic center of Vicenza, and the riders after having flanked the train station will immediately head towards Borgo Berga and then, when the race pace will already be high, come to the the beginning of the Berica Riviera will pass in front of Villa Capra called "La Rotonda" designed by Palladio.

After about 3 km and a half in Longara you leave the Berica Riviera to go into a secondary road that leads to Pianezze near the lake of Fimon, natural oasis in the heart of the Berici Hills, and arrived at the district of Fimon (km 14) first roughness of the day: the Fimon - San Gottardo.

This is a first stretch (Rapallo road) 2 km long with slopes of 9-10% followed by a pedalable stretch straddling the town of Perarolo and which at km 18 presents a challenging stretch that will end after about 3 km at the GPM of San Gottardo also facing steep slopes of 14%.

The hardest stretch will be followed by gentle ups and downs until Via Molini that will bring us down near Alonte and from where on a gentle slope we will cross Via Corlanzone up to Stamberg, which we can consider as the first buoy around which to take along 17 first flat km to Orgiano where at km 43 the first complete refreshment will be placed and then to San Germano dei Berici.

Just in San Germano dei Berici after 60 km of competition both the participants in the mediofondo (new 2016) and those at the granfondo immediately after the church of the village will turn right into Via Castello to face another of the most arcane climbs of Granfondo Liotto : San Germano dei Berici - Lupia road that will ferry competitors from Val Liona to the plateau of Pozzolo; they are 4 km with an average gradient of 9% in the first half while the maximum gradient of 20% will be reached at the beginning of the climb.
At the end of the descent to Pozzolo will be placed the junction between the two routesoffered and the competitors of the granfondo will have to turn left.

So immediately after the church of Pozzolo, where it will be placed a complete refreshment, you will enter the path in common with the granfondo and will begin a descent with gradients in double figures to be addressed carefully until the first intersection in Pederiva where the cyclists will play right for the road that leads to Zovencedo (News 2018); this is therefore a 4.5 km long ascent with a positive difference in altitude of 300 m and slopes of up to 15%.

When you reach the intersection with the Berici ridge you will continue towards San Gottardo with a valley path and some tracts with double-digit inclines; near San Gottardo will be placed the last refreshment that will find the cyclists before launching for the streamlined descent that reaches the gates of the town of Arcugnano and then for the technical descent that leads from Villa Pasini down into Viale Sant'Agostino close to the city of Vicenza.

From this point up to the arrival positioned in Viale Roma with the railway station in the background the competitors will have to travel only straights without roughness with some change of direction and a refreshment located near the arrival banner will end the ride on the Berici Mountains.

A San Gottardo (77 km) ci sarà il bivio tra i due percorsi proposti: coloro che si cimenteranno nel percorso mediofondo dovranno svoltare a sinistra e non resterà che lanciarsi lungo la filante discesa che arriva fino alle porte dell’abitato di Arcugnano (4,5 km dal traguardo) e da qui lungo un percorso vallonato arrivati nei pressi di Villa Pasini ci sarà un “rimbalzo” in salita di 500 metri seguito da un falsopiano.
L’ultimo km di corsa inizierà in prossimità dei due tornanti in leggera discesa (sinistra, destra) e ancora 300 metri in leggera salita concluderanno la cavalcata di 90 km sui Monti Berici davanti al Museo del Risorgimento e della Resistenza.

Trattasi quindi di un percorso adatto a tante tipologie di corridori e al mese di aprile, che nella seconda metà di gara richiederà una buona condizione fisica per far fronte alle due salite più impegnative di questa edizione e ad un percorso quasi mai piatto.
Per chi viene da lontano sarà l’occasione per scoprire nuovi versanti dei magnifici Colli Berici non ancora toccati dalle scorse edizioni della Granfondo Liotto. Buon divertimento!
