Boasting 2,400m of elevation, the 162km race tests the endurance of riders with an awe-inspiring course. The first 25km leads along the Moselle region which occupies much of the eastern part of the country and features slopes flanking the majestic Moselle River before testing for the first time their climbing qualities.
The 162km course is a very challenging race track with a repetition of short and steep climbs.
The race course will also cross the Mullerthal Region – Luxembourg’s Little Switzerland – which owes its name to its hilly landscape reminiscent of real Switzerland. This region is above all a unique biotope characterized by fascinating rock formations which owe their aspect to millenniums of erosion. Parts of the region are about to become a nature park. The Schleck Gran Fondo provides spectacular views at the rock formations.
The highest point is reached after 81,5km in Angelsberg, before returning to the start/ finish in Mondorf-les-Bains
