INDIVIDUAL RACE ROUTES
Changes to the itinerary of the individual race
The itinerary of the individual race, on 26 January, has been modified to adapt to the snow conditions in Vallnord - Ordino Arcalís. The new itinerary will include three ascents and three descents, with an elevation of 1,655 meters in the Men Senior category.
The new itinerary retains all technical characteristics, both in the ascents and the descents, and guarantees the best level of security, while offering a panorama of almost 100% over the race for those wanting to follow it on site.
Departure will be located at Els Planells, at 2,060 meters, and from there, the first ascent will bring the racers through Coma d’Arcalís to the highest point of the resort, a few meters above the Basera chairlift, with a drop of 490 meters. The first descent will almost bring racers back to the departure point, through Portella del Mig and the second ascent will take them through the outskirts of the black ski run of La Portella. The second descent will be almost identical to the first one, and the third and last ascent, the most demanding of all with 655 meters, will pass through the Grand Canal to Collada d’Arcalís, at 2,715 meters, from where racers will start their final descent to the arrival point, located at Els Planells.
Reminder: this race will be streamed live on the www.fontblanca.ad website.
The vertical race of Sunday 27 January will follow the same itinerary as in previous years, with only minor adjustments, and will be broadcasted live, for the second consecutive year, by Andorra Televisió, as well as on the www.andorradifusio.ad website.
