The long version of the cycle tour (125 km, with an elevation gain of 1,600 m) follow the same route as the short version up to km 22, at which point the cyclists will head towards Romanyà de la Selva. Next comes a 10km descent to Calonge, from which the racers will begin the climb along the La Ganga mountain pass, a stunning setting backdropped by the Costa Brava. The route then makes a slight descent to La Bisbal d'Empordà, at km 56, which marks the beginning of the long 16km climb to Sant Pellaia. This fairly quick mountain pass has an average gradient of 2% and culminates with a descent to Cassà de la Selva, where riders will be able to catch a glimpse of the Els Àngels Sanctuary. The cyclists will tackle the main climb with 80 km under their belt, after which, following the second timed stretch, they will head towards Sant Martí Vell, before returning across gentle yet deceptively hilly terrain to Girona, where the public will be waiting for them at the Sea Otter Europe finish line.
