The 111 edition of Il Lombardia (cycling race) starts from Bergamo and arrives to Como after 247km. The “Classic of the Dead Leaves”, the last Classic Monument race of the season, will run on the same route as the 2015 edition, when Vincenzo Nibali rode to a solo victory.
A very selective route with six climbs and 4,000 meters of vertical elevation. The first climb, Colle Gallo, is followed by Colle Brianza; and after the town of Onno the riders climb the Madonna del Ghisallo, followed by the Muro di Sormano. After passing the Colma di Sormano the race descends to Nesso and onto the last two climbs: Civiglio and San Fermo della Battaglia, before reaching the finish line on Lungo Lario Trento e Trieste in Como.
