La Leggendaria Charly Gaul in the beautiful Trentino region

The 14th edition of the Charly Gaul Granfondo in Trento is a real classic in the UCI Gran Fondo World Series with yearly events since 2012 and the world championships in 2013 and again in 2022.

The time trial on Friday is often considered as one of the most beautiful time trial courses with a long stretch along the lakes and a tough uphill climb back towards Cavedine where the start and finish are located.

The Granfondo on Sunday has its traditional concept with start on the old medieval square in downtown Trento for a first loop to the north and a tough finish on top of Monte Bondone. Riders over 50 can head directly to the top via the original “Charly Gaul” climb to finish after 56km, but young riders need to do the 22km climb twice before reaching the finish.
