The Eifel is a region famous for both delighting and torturing cyclists. So no surprise that we chose the Eifel to host such a wild event as Grinduro Germany. But what exactly is Grinduro? It’s a combo of a gravel grinder road race and mountain bike enduro: one long loop on all kinds of terrain, where finishing times aren’t based on overall loop time, but four timed segments.
The routes are a mix of everything from pavement, gravel and single trail. Grinduro is held in enduro format, with four stages ridden in race mode, the rest of the tour can be enjoyed without time pressure. It's both beautiful and challenging. With a well-balanced mix of paved and unpaved, flat and hilly, fast and technical, social and competitive.
