GIRO DI SERA | PEDALITALY Etna Virtual Race

From Biancavilla to Rifugio Sapienza, the ascent of Mount Etna.

The Giro di Sera kicks off with an immediately challenging but spectacular stage in the largest of the Italian and Mediterranean islands, Sicily

A route of 22.2 km with an elevation gain of 1,370 m will take us up the southern slope of Mount Etna, dedicated to one of the greatest climbers in the history of cycling: Marco Pantani.

The climb is part of a project, the Etna Cycling Park, which has mapped the 7 slopes of Europe’s highest active volcano and named them after the great champions of world cycling. The latest inauguration is this one, which leads from Biancavilla to the Rifugio Sapienza, the longest, the “queen” of climbs, dedicated to the king of climbers.

The route winds along secondary roads with little traffic, immersed in the nature of the splendid Sicilian island, which changes, kilometre after kilometre, encountering different climates and cultures: from flourishing citrus groves, vineyards, fruit trees and chestnut, beech and pine woods to the highest areas, the desert ones, where thin bushes of juniper and astragalus alternate. A unique natural environment characterised by large lava flows and an extraordinary, almost lunar landscape.

The ascent which reaches an altitude of 1,900 m is straightforward and leaves no room for refreshment, but the boundless view that opens up before the eyes of the cyclists will repay all efforts. 

The finish line is located at the Rifugio Sapienza – 1,910 m –  where starts the Etna cable car, which takes you up to 2,504 m.

Distance: 22.2 km

Elevation: 1,370 m
