ELS ÀNGELS HILL CLIMB
Festival week kicks off with a bang! This is the perfect opportunity to test your legs out with a time trial up famous, local climb Els Àngels.
The Hill Climb, featuring Girona’s most renowned local ascent ‘Els Àngels’ is a true battle against the clock. At 10.4km in distance, it may sound a little daunting. However, with a relatively low average gradient many parts of the climb can be tackled at speed and finishing times in past editions have been nothing short of fast.
Riders leave the start ramp at 30 second intervals and the road is fully closed for the duration of the event. Prizes are awarded for the 1st 2nd and 3rd rider from each age category.
10.4 km in length and of varying gradients the whole way up – it is sure to be a test, however well worth the effort for the exceptional views up top!
Once completed, sit back with fellow participants at the beautiful Monastery on top and enjoy our Pasta Party. This is always a fantastic day out and a great way to meet other riders!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
- The start of the Hill Climb is at “Carretera Els Àngels” (the base of the climb).
- You can ride to the start line in just 10 min from the center of Girona.
- Riders must sing in at the start line at 10:30h. And then will be called for their individual start time.
- Use of aero bars is prohibited.
*Entry to this event is included in the festival week entry and gold packs.
