The Monsterrato Race

After presenting the MONSTERRATO VETERAN RACE (short route of 65 km for men over 60 and women over 50), we will now present briefly the #long route, the MONSTERRATO RACE (km # 125) for men under 60 and women under 50, scheduled as well on 3 September with departure at 10 am and arrival at Quattordio. The route has numerous ups and downs. The climbs are not long and rather gentle, with the exception of some short “walls”.

The overall altitude is # 1750 meters: it must be approached very carefully. There are four parts you should pay attention to, here they are in the order in which they will be addressed: in the initial phase, pay attention to the climb of Cà Intersenga, which ends with an insidious false dirt surface. Then, in the central phase of the race, the ascent of the Firata, which will take you through the vineyards, and the ascent to Cascina Sant’Antonio. In the end, the stretch that leads to the #CastellodelLajone deserves attention. From there to the finish high speed will be possible.
The route – mixed white, dirt and asphalt roads and obviously many ups and downs – passes through the municipalities of Quattordio, Masio, Felizzano Fubine, Altavilla, Vignale, Camagna, Conzano, Lu and Cuccaro, Viarigi and CerroTanaro before returning to Quattordio.

Some stretches require particular skill and concentration in driving the bike on gravel roads and dirt roads. This problem will obviously worsen in case of rain on the day of the event or in the days immediately preceding it. In the final part you will go through some stretches already covered in the initial phase.

The MONSTERRATORACE is reserved for holders of a card for competitive cycling or a medical-sports certificate of fitness for competitive cycling (with a supplement of € 10 for the Federciclismo day card) and is open to gravel bikes, mountain bikes, recommended historical bikes with wide tires, cyclocross bikes, modern racing bikes (recommended with off-road tires).
In case of emergency rescue along the route will be provided by the CroceRossa of Alessandria and the CroceVerde of Felizzano with medicalized tenders and ambulances. Thanks to the Prefettura, Questura and Polizia Stradale of Alessandria and Asti and to AnasPiemonte: their competence, their collaboration and their courtesy are fundamental for us.
MONSTERRATORACE (as well as Monsterrato Veteran) entitles to some places for the UCI World Championship scheduled in Veneto on 8 and 9 October
