Amateur and professional cyclists will face 140 very demanding kilometres.
- Latest News
The Regional Delegate for Red Eléctrica de España, Carlos González, and the Mayor of Dumbría (La Coruña), José Manuel, have signed a collaboration agreement whereby, for the second consecutive year, the Company will sponsor the ‘Gran Fondo de Ézaro’ cycling race which will take place on 3 July.
Last year more than one thousand cycling enthusiasts, including former professional cyclists like Miguel Indurain, Claudio Chiappucci and Álvaro Pino took part in this spectacular race. Cyclists must climb a concrete road with a gradient of more than 25% slope to reach the Ézaro lookout point (‘Mirador de Ézaro’), which makes this ascent even harder and many participants have to dismount in order to reach the summit.
For this year’s edition, more than 800 cyclists have already registered, including Joseba Beloki, Ángel Casero, Ibán Mayo and Chechu Rubiera, who will face the planned route of 140 kilometres which has a dramatic and demanding finale.
One further attraction of this year’s edition is the confirmation that the Tour of Spain cycling race (Vuelta Ciclista a España) will again have one of its race stages finish in the Mirador de Ézaro, just weeks after the ‘Gran Fondo de Ézaro’ will have taken place.
