In the elite race, last year’s winner, Elisa Longo Borghini will be at the starting line, together with the number two Elisa Balsamo, the reigning world champion. Among the favourites are Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Chantal Blaak. Katrine Aalerud and Mavi Garcia. But there are many athletes who aspire to win in Cittiglio.
Among the juniors, predictions are difficult, with the only certainty, thanks to our experience from the past eight editions; the winner will be an athlete who will later prove to be a great champion.
The race route
The elite women’s race route is divided into three different sections. The first section includes a 7 km loop through Olginasio and Besozzo (to be repeated twice).

Finally, the athletes will cover the traditional final circuit, to be repeated four times, passing through Brenta, Casalzuigno, Cuveglio, Cuvio, Orino, Azzio, Gemonio and Cittiglio.
The junior women’s race circuit includes two laps of the initial circuit through Olginasio and Besozzo. Then a third lap that passes through Gemonio and Cittiglio, where the final circuit begins that is identical to that of the elite race.
