A two-kilometre stretch passes through the old town of Limone and ascends through olive groves. From here, the course climbs up a rocky limestone path, zig-zagging it’s way up the Passo Rocchetta, to Cima Mughera.
Then things a getting serious! After climbing a section of the historical VK course, a very technical section with unique views on the lake have been will bring the athletes to the top of Monte Carone, the summit of the race.
