Participants will cross all types of terrain, asphalt roads and some urban sections. This is an event where any type of biking is allowed, although the organization recommends the use of gravel or cyclocross bikes. Once the race has started with a type of bike, it cannot be changed to another during the challenge.
The participants will start this great challenge through the regions of Girona following the Ter road to the Colomers dam, from where they will begin the climb to the Gavarres mountains, to enjoy a magnificent view from the top of the mountains to Gironès and Empordà.
The organization recommends having a support team if they are registered on a non-stop basis, which can have up to two people who can provide support at the aid stations.
