  • Description

Breve corsa a tappe nel Centro-Sud Italia che ricalca l'antico percorso dell'antica via Appia, da Brindisi a Roma.
Tutto il percorso (compresi partenze, sprint intermedi e arrivi) segue il tracciato storico reale della via romana.
La corsa a tappe è molto varia e presenta un arrivo per sprinter a Gravina, una tappa molto mossa ma con arrivo semplice a Benevento e un arrivo su uno strappo all'antico tempio romano di Giove Anxur a Terracina, prima dell'ultima tappa.
Questa prevede una facile salita fino ad Ariccia e poi un circuito da ripetere 3 volte con un passaggio di 11 km sul ciottolato proprio dell'Appia antica, prima dell'arrivo davanti al Colosseo.
Il percorso suggestivo ma non troppo esigente e il clima dei luoghi attraversati sarebbe particolarmente adatto ad un posizionamento a fine Febbraio/inizio Marzo, come preparazione per le corse WT della primavera italiana.
