The routes

The Alpine Challenge routes set standards in terms of both sport and scenery. Shortly after the start, the Albula, one of the most beautiful and challenging passes in the Alps, is on the programme. While the short course starts in Silvaplana and goes up to the Julier Pass for the second ascent, the long course leads via Maloja into Bergell, down to Italy and over the gruelling ascent of the Splügen Pass back to Switzerland.
