The round trip leads in a long ascent from Lumbrein to Alp Sezner and Alp Nova. This is followed by a brisk descent through the alpine landscape from Upper Saxony down to the Wali. Shortly after the Wali, the short ascent to Plampord begins, followed by a short descent to Undermatt. In Undermatt, the ascent continues to the Cuolm Sura and the Grisons Rigi, where you have a fantastic view of the Surselva. You will return through the forest of Sogn Carli to the Val Lumnezia. First, you ascend to Alp Sogn Carli and shortly afterwards enjoy the beautiful descent past Triel to the Davos Munts bathing lake. Here begins the last strenuous ascent, which is then rewarded with a beautiful single trail descent to Lumbrein.

For the race, individual sections of the track may deviate from this route!
