Course details announced for inaugural Haute Route Qingcheng


Taking place from October 25th to 27th, the inaugural Haute Route Qingcheng promises three days of stunning riding on a challenging and undulating course based around the mythical Qingcheng Mountain.

Totaling 232km with 4970M+ of climbing, the course features demanding ascents up climbs such as the Xiange-Hongkou Pass, Qingcheng Mountain Road and snaking Balcony Road as well as striking landscapes throughout.

The final day time trial on the famous Puhong Road Pass also promises a memorable end to the weekend with stunning views throughout. A first for the Haute Route, the entire course will be on fully closed roads, bringing riders ever-closer to the true ride-like-a-pro experience!

Hosted in the historical towns of Dujiangyan and Wenchuan on the edge of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau, riders can expect a course with many rolling hills and several significant climbs on the first two stages before a challenging uphill time trial on the final day. The picturesque region that features Qingcheng Mountain will provide a stunning backdrop throughout as riders get to enjoy the cool fresh air in the Minjiang valley, its colourful towns and rivers providing a unique environment for riding.
