The route of the Titan Desert 2020
September 24 th 2020 - 10:30
Five stages and 7,000 metres of elevation gain
The route of the Titan Desert 2020 is changing its surroundings, but not it its philosophy. The province of Almería will be home to 5 stages covering 400 kilometres and an elevation gain of 7,000 metres. Spectacular landscape and hard riding will continue to be the common denominator, particularly in the two days of mountain stages in the Sierra de Alhamilla, marked by large differences in height.
Scrutineering will take place on November 1st, and the five stages will be held between the 2nd and 6th with the usual incentives: sand, paths, ravines, mountains… and the classic Titan Spirit among the participants, helping each other through the stages in pursuit of the prized fossil that all finishers receive.
