If you’ve qualified for this wonderful event and are serious about putting in a good showing, you’ll need to be prepared! Many of you will be traveling a great distance to be in Denmark.
The tour program we have put together will get you ready and help you optimize your performance in the event(s) for which you’ve qualified.
Our 4 star hotel is based in Aalborg providing easy access to both the Granfondo courses and the ITT, while enjoying the vibrant city of Dundee in top class accommodation.
One More Ride was the co-organizer of the WCS UCI event in Varese, and Andrea personally designed all the race courses, so we know how to support you out there! Andrea and the staff have already been to Aalborg to check out hotels, logistic and race courses! Come early to acclimatize to the terrain and ride the race course several times with Andrea, without pushing too hard. You’ll get ready for the race while enjoying the beautiful region of Scotland.
The area is perfect for non-riders as well, so you can bring your family or supporters.

WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS EXPERIENCE?
The experience is built for all riders who have qualified for the UCI World Championship by finishing in the top 20% of their age group in one of the previous UCI World Series events. We also welcome riders able to ride for 4-5 hours a day and just want to enjoy the region without racing.
The days leading up to the races we will do a course recon at a moderate pace and ensure proper recovery after each ride; no high intensity unless you want to!
We will ride as a group on the rolling terrain and as individuals or small groups on the climbs, so that everyone will enjoy the ride at his own pace. Our team of expert guides will support each rider during the ride and make sure everyone finishes safe and happy.
All cyclists interested in granfondo, race atmosphere, and magnificent scenery will enjoy this incredible experience!

MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
The ITT course is a flat course of 33km (21miles) and will have 133 m (418 ft) of undulating climbing. This makes the course perfect for Time Trial and ideal for new records, both personal and in the UCI Championships.The course follows the beautiful coast along the Limfjord. In Denmark you have wind from west with approximately 220 days a year which means that you normally will discover a headwind on your way out and a nice tailwind on your way back to the finish line
The Gran Fondo is 148 km (92 miles) long with 1311 meters (4,300 ft) of climbing, while the Medio Fondo is 111 km long (69.3 miles) with 950 meters (3,116 ft) of climbing. Denmark can’t provide big mountains but the course will have many small hills with technical sections and will challenge you with sustained efforts and continuous rolling climbs, suiting puncheurs and roulers. The wind could also be a big factor being close to the sea.The race is primarily on good asphalt paved roads and one cobbled-section.
