Sport

The first UCI Gran Fondo Suisse will take place on 4th and 5th June 2022 in Villars-sur-Ollon.

The UCI Gran Fondo Switzerland is composed of a time trial on Saturday and a road race on a magnificent course on Sunday.

Starting in Villars-sur-Ollon the road race passes over the Col de la Croix (1,776m), Col du Pillon (1,546m) and Col des Mosses (1,445m) and ends with a second ascent of the Col de la Croix (arrival at the summit). With 108km km and 2,591 meters of climbing over 4 climbs, the UCI Gran Fondo Switzerland road races offers an ideal challenge for an early summer cycling event.

SATURDAY 4 JUNE - A time trial from the Villars Sports Centre to the Col de la Croix
On a course of 7.4 km, the participants will start from the Sports Center in Villars and finish the time trial at the Col de la Croix.

SUNDAY 5 JUNE - A road race starting from Villars
A magnificent course starting in Villars-sur-Ollon that passes over the Col de la Croix (1,776m), Col du Pillon (1,546m) and Col des Mosses (1,445m) and ends with a second ascent of the Col de la Croix (arrival at the summit).

The event is the only Swiss round of the UCI Gran Fondo World Series, a series of 30 UCI-approved races that are being held all around the world. The athletes who rank in the top 20% of their age category will qualify for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships that will be held in Trento (Italy).

It will therefore be a chance for cyclists from Switzerland and neighbouring countries to qualify for the World Championships and to try to win the famous rainbow jersey.
