The Nordic Trailblazer qualified though the 5th in the Gravel World Series in Halmstad, Sweden, and another 7th in the World Series in Ranxo Gravel, Cataluna. He has not been outside top 7 in any Gravel World Series Race.

The elite route is 194 km. It starts in Vicenza, follows the rider to Padua, then the river to Citadella. In Citadella there will be to loops of 26 km before the and finish.

The route should be fast, with some narrow gravel paths. It's pancake flat with only 600 meter elevation over the whole course.
