Tre Valli Varesine
The Tre Valli Varesine is a semi classic European bicycle race held in Varese, Italy. Since 2005, the race has been organized as a 1.HC event on the UCI Europe Tour.
It is usually the first and most important race of Trittico Lombardo, which consists of three races held around the region of Lombardy on three consecutive days. These races are Tre Valli Varesine, Coppa Ugo Agostoni and Coppa Bernocchi.
Tre Valli Varesine might not look like much, but this is a really difficult race. After a gentle start, cyclists hit the lap circuit after 82km, where they spend the next 130km of the day. The initial lap circuit features a fast descent and two climbs, with the speed increasing throughout the day. Put simply, there is nowhere to hide in the circuit!
Last year, the organizers decided to slightly change the finish of the race, by introducing a longer lap near the end of the race. The final two laps are 21.29km in length, compared to 12.9km in the shorter lap. The Montello climb is 1150m at 6.5% and had a maximum of 10%. The new addition to the race last year was the Morosolo climb, which is 4.6km at 4.8%, but that includes a descent, the beginning of the climb is the hard bit.
1.6km at 8% is a climb which will test the sprinters and will provide the punchers with a lot of hope. The organizers are hoping that this provides a launch pad for the climbers. The climb is narrow and new for the vast majority of riders. Once over the top of the difficult section, we still have 8km left in the race.
After a short descent, we have another little kicker for the riders to deal with. The climbing is all done with 4km remaining and the final kilometer is the same as in previous years.
Circuit racing usually follows a set plan. Each lap sees the pace increase and the closing 30km usually features many attacks. Teams continually want to have a man in the move, allowing their other riders the chance to hide in the pack.
Being a new finishing circuit, we will probably see a more defensive race. Most teams will be happy to have all the action in the final lap. The top of the Montello climb is too far out for a move to survive, meaning the moves will go on the new climb, but cresting with 4km remaining does mean we have a chance of a small sprint.
