2002 born uphill race

Postby United1 » 26 Dec 2016, 7:35pm

I'm looking for an uphill race in Europe for my 15 year old son. The only two I found are not ideal. The granfondo the stelvio is an excellent race and with a distance of 63km might be just right ,but unfortunately the date is not available for him. The other granfondo alpi Biellese , is on perfect date , but 94km uphill is way too much for him.
Does anyone knows of any uphill races around easter or in summer that accepts 15 year olds

If you want to get your son into a race I suggest you get him to join a club, there is plenty of junior racing. These events are not races in any case but cycling events/challenges, big diffference.
Why not plot your own route on your own preferred dates and 'race' it then, why does it need to be part of someone elses plans/event, why not make it just for you and him?
