The 116th edition of the Tour of Lombardy will be held on Saturday 8 October. The fifth of cycling’s five Monuments is the last illustrious European race of the season. Given the time of year, Il Lombardia has been nicknamed the Race of the Falling Leaves. Running from Bergamo to Como, the route adds up to 253 kilometres, while the Civiglio and the climb to San Fermo della Battaglia mark the finale. (Slideshow route/profile)
