Stage 2

Date: 7 November 2016
Venue: Yuxi, Fuxian Hui, Yunnan
Distance: 174 km and 82km

Brief description:

The longest stage of the Colourful Yunnan Granfondo Cycling Festival with 174 km and a significant amount of altitude gain (approx 2500 hm) as well. Coming straight after the Kunming stage with restricted recovery time, last year showed that you do not win the overall classification of the Granfondo Tour in Yuxi, but you can certainly lose it. A long day in the saddle, timing your efforts will be of the essence.

BE AWARE: every day we have cut off times that are strictly imposed. On most days these cut off times are quite generous (approx required speed is 18 km/h), but given the very long distance in Yuxi it is recommended to keep an eye on the clock. Last year, everybody managed to finish, but we repeat that we are under orders from local authorities to be strict with the cut offs and cannot provide any flexibility for any kind of reason. If you arrive too late at the final drinking station, you will be asked to enter the following vehicle.
